Audrey Fan receives K99/R00 award

April 2018 - Audrey Fan, PhD, was awarded the K99/R00 NIH Pathway to Independence Award. This prestigious grant provides up to five years of funding for new scientists planning to become independent researchers.

Dr. Fan is currently an instructor in the Radiology department mentored by Dr. Greg Zaharchuk. Her research focuses on modeling oxygenation in the brain using MRI imaging techniques and combining that information with PET functional metabolic imaging. With these approaches, she hopes to better understand the metabolisms underlying diseases such as stroke and Moya-Moya disease.
