Stanford’s Translational Biomedical Imaging Instrumentation (TBI2) Training Program

This multidisciplinary predoctoral training program will train the next generation of researchers and inventors of biomedical imaging technology. Trainees will gain expertise in multiple medical imaging modalities, rigorous and reproducible experimental design, and translational applications. Trainees that complete our training program will have a unique skill set that fulfills a distinct national need for researchers and leaders with expertise in advanced biomedical imaging instrumentation.

A-129 I Stanford Tiger Team 2022-2024: Advanced Cardiac Functional and Flow MRI for Pediatrics and Adults

The purpose of this proposal is to develop and refine several methods for fast and artifact free cardiac functional and flow imaging. This project leverages our prior experience applying deep learning-based reconstruction methods to 2D PC-MRI measurements and time-optimal pulse sequence design. By incorporating these novel methods, we aim to enable single-beat 2D PC-MRI and artifact free bSSFP cine imaging, we intend to generate a comprehensive flow and functional cardiac exam that can be widely used in the clinic

Using Atrial Mechanics to Identify Fibrosis in Patients with Atrial Fibrillation

We propose to use magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of atrial mechanics to identify localized fibrosis and hypothesize that attenuated mechanics provide a robust measure of atrial fibrosis.

Health Enabling Advancements through Regenerative Tissue Printing (HEART)

The goal of this project is to integrate automated and organ-scale biomanufacturing capacity, entirely new and rapid 3D collaborative printing robots, and continuous layer-free bioprinters for rapid-production of complex tissue models to begin the era of organ biofabrication.
