    Bio Dr. Wei Bian received his PhD from the UC Berkeley and UCSF graduate program in Bioengineering. His Ph.D. focused on using magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) to investigate tissue susceptibility in the human brain. Using MR phase and susceptibility-weighted imaging (SWI), he studied iron-induced susceptibility contrast in multiple sclerosis lesions and cerebral microbleeds. To define the spatial relationship between microbleeds and blood vessels, he implemented a multi-echo MRI sequence to acquire images from arteries, veins and microbleeds simultaneously. He also designed a algorithm to quickly and accurately identify microbleeds automatically. Now at Stanford, Wei is a postdoctoral fellow in the Richard M. Lucas Center for Imaging. He is focusing on studying inflammation in multiple sclerosis using quantitative susceptibility mapping (QSM) and effective relaxation rate (R2*) mapping with ultra-high resolution 7T MRI. His methods will expand into other disease such as Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Alzheimer's disease, and Traumatic Brain Injury. He is also working on sequence development for faster and more effective acquisitions for QSM as well as quantitative imaging (volumetric analysis and DTI).
