Dr. Israt Alam is a Research Scientist at the Radiology Department at Stanford University in Prof. Sanjiv Sam Gambhir's lab. Her research focuses on studying lymphocyte activation with the motivation of developing non-invasive imaging tools, to monitor immune dynamics in response to immunotherapy and for diagnosis of immune driven diseases. Her work has supported the clinical translation of several nuclear imaging agents for early disease diagnosis and prediction of treatment response for improved patient management.

Current Role at Stanford •Original research focusing on applications of MR guided Focused Ultrasound (MRgFUS) for ablative treatments of cancer and trans-cranial neurosurgical treatment of tremor.
•Developing new MRI imaging strategies and pulse sequence development of non-ablative applications of focused ultrasound, including MR Acoustic Radiation Force Imaging.
•Medical Physicist including ultrasound treatment planning and MRI imaging specialist of multiple ongoing human clinical trials, as well as clinical treatments at SHC, to image, treat, and monitor MRgFUS of bone metastases, soft tissue tumors of the extremities, uterine fibroids, and trans-cranial MRgFUS treatment of essential tremor.
•Bridge technical and clinical communication as a go between in collaborations with clinicians, interventional radiologists, imaging technologists, medical device companies, and research scientists, graduate students, and faculty.
