2020 Academy for Radiology & Biomedical Imaging Research Distinguished Investigators
June 1, 2020
The Academy for Radiology & Biomedical Imaging Research (ARR) has announced its 2020 recipents of the 9th Annual Distinguished Investigator Award. Two of Stanford Radiology's faculty have been recognized with this pretigious honor. Please extend your congratulations to Daniel Bruce Ennis, PhD, and H. Tom Soh, PhD!
Dr. Ennis is an Associate Professor of Radiology and the Director of Radiology Research for the Veterans Administration Palo Alto Health Care System. As an MRI scientist for nearly twenty years, he has worked to develop advanced translational cardiovascular MRI methods for quantitatively assessing structure, function, flow, and remodeling in both adult and pediatric populations.
Dr. Soh is a Professor of Radiology (Early Detection), of Electrical Engineering and, by courtesy, of Chemical Engineering and of Bioengineering. His current research interests are in analytical biotechnology, especially in high-throughput screening, directed evolution, and integrated biosensors.
All recipients will be inducted into the Academy's Council of Distinguished Investigators during the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) Meeting in November, to be held virtually this year. In order to be honored with this award, each of the recipients must have met specific criteria. Some of the criteria are significant research contributions, sustained productivity (including at least 25 peer-reviewded scientific research publications in which the awardee is the first or a senior author), and they must have demonstrated accomplishment as an independent investigator with a substantial ongoing research program, including at least 6 cumulative years of funding as the PI of a major competitive research grant.
Congratulations, Dr. Ennis and Dr. Soh!
