Asaf Shlomo Ilovitsh
Postdoctoral Research Fellow, Molecular Imaging Program at Stanford
Bio Asaf Ilovitsh received his B.Sc. in Physics (2004), M.Sc. in Electrical Engineering (2012), and Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering (2016), from Bar Ilan University, Israel. His Ph.D. research involved developing new methods for super resolution optical imaging, especially using the time domain. Asaf joined the Ferrara lab in 2016 as a postdoctoral fellow. His research involves developing rapid elastography measurements using MR-guided Focused Ultrasound (MRgFUS), and developing new ultrasound imaging methods.
Postdoctoral Research Fellow, Molecular Imaging Program at Stanford
Bio Tali Ilovitsh is a postdoctoral fellow in Prof. Katherine Ferrara laboratory at the Department of Radiology, School of Medicine, Stanford University. She received her B.Sc. (2010), M.Sc. in a direct track (2011), and Ph.D. (2016) degrees in electrical engineering from Bar Ilan University, Israel. Her Ph.D. research in the field of optical imaging was focused on the development of super-resolution techniques for microscopy. Since joining the Ferrara lab in 2016 she has been working in the fields of ultrasound therapy and imaging. Her research is focused on the development of medical ultrasound technologies that provide non-invasive, cost effective, real-time and safe monitoring, diagnostics and therapy for clinically relevant problems. Currently, she uses low frequency focused ultrasound as a mean to open the blood brain barrier and facilitate drug delivery. Additionally, she develops an ultrasound beam shaping technology that allows to image tissues beyond ultrasonically-impenetrable obstacles, and is also used for label-free ultrasound super-resolution.
Basic Life Res Scientist, Rad/Canary Center at Stanford for Cancer Early Detection
Current Role at Stanford Dr. Fatih Inci’s area of excellence in research is to create micro- and nano-scale platform technologies at the intersection of medicine, biomedical engineering, biotechnology, chemistry, and materials science by manipulating biomolecules, cells and viruses in small volumes that offers precise solutions for real-world challenges in clinical diagnostics, personalized medicine, early cancer detection, forensic science, and biomarker discovery.
