Bio Dr. Marianne Black is a Postdoctoral Fellow in Radiology in the IMMERS (Incubator for Medical Mixed and Extended Reality), BMR (Body Magnetic Resonance) and JOINT (Joint and Osteoarthritis Imaging with Novel Technology) groups. Dr. Black currently works with with Drs. Brian Hargreaves, Bruce Daniel and Garry Gold. Her postdoctoral research is focused on imaging to detect and treat musculoskeletal disease. She is developing immersive mixed reality tools to improve surgical outcomes in orthopaedics.
Dr. Black’s PhD research under Drs. Marc Levenston, Brian Hargreaves and Garry Gold focused on the application and development of novel methods and analysis techniques for quantitative knee imaging using MRI and CT. Her work included leading a study measuring quantitative MRI parameters of ACL-injured subjects, and her analysis methods that built upon Dr. Hargreaves group’s previous analysis methods showed the ability to differentiate ACL-injured and healthy cartilage as early as 3-months post-surgery. Prior to attending Stanford, she completed her MASc at the University of British Columbia in Biomedical Engineering under Dr. Dave Wilson. Dr. Black's research studied the effect of wedge and slope in medical opening high tibial osteotomy on joint kinematics and tibiofemoral joint contact pressure. She also co-founded Arbutus Medical during this time, which develops orthopaedic medical devices for low-resource hospitals.

Current Research and Scholarly Interests Research Focus:
Developing and evaluating imaging techniques to enhance understanding and diagnosis of neurological disorders. My current research focuses on imaging neuroinflammation in neurodegenerative disorders such as stroke, Alzheimer's disease and multiple sclerosis using positron emission tomography (PET) and magnetic resonance (MR) techniques.
My previous research topics include investigating the effects of childhood maltreatment and major depressive disorder on brain morphology.
