    Murat Aksoy

    Affiliate, Rad/Neuroimaging and Neurointervention

    Bio I graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Elecrical & Electronics Engineering from Bo?aziçi University, Istanbul, Turkey and got my M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in Electical Engineering at Stanford University under the supervision of Dr. Roland Bammer. Currently, I am working as a research associate in the department of Radiology at Stanford University. My primary research interest is the detection and correction of patient motion during magnetic resonance imaging experiments us?ng an optical tracking system (i.e., a camera) wh?ch is installed inside the MR scanner bore. My eventual purpose is to implement this motion tracking system in a clinical setting, which will improve the MR image quality especially for certain patient populations (stroke patients, elderly and children) and will eliminate the need of anesthesia in pediatric population. I also worked on improving the data quality for diffusion-weighted and diffusion-tensor imaging via advanced reconstruction routines, and examined the benefits of such methods on fiber tractography.

  • Israt Alam

    Israt Alam

    Rad/Molecular Imaging Scientist, Rad/Molecular Imaging Program at Stanford

    Bio Research Focus and interests: Molecular Imaging, PET, Immuno-Oncology, Graft versus Host Disease, CAR T cells

    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.

  • Victoria (Tori) Arendt

    Victoria (Tori) Arendt

    Affiliate, Dean's Office Operations - Dean Other

    Bio Tori grew up in Cleveland, Ohio and attended Duke University, where she majored in Biology and minored in Computer Science. After graduation, she moved to San Diego, where she worked at a biotechnology company researching stabilization of blood products at room temperature. In 2014, she moved to Palo Alto and began medical school at Stanford. During medical school, she worked with Dr. Rusty Hofmann in interventional radiology researching best practices in venous interventions, leading to multiple publications and presentations at SIR. After graduating from medical school in 2018, she began her general surgery intern year at the Cleveland Clinic and after a year in Cleveland, she returned to the California sunshine to begin radiology residency in July 2019. Tori continues to be active in her research into the treatment of venous disease. Outside of residency, she also enjoys hiking around northern California, traveling the world, running, and reading all types of books.
