Our laboratory focuses on the development of novel in vivo magnetic resonance spectroscopy and multinucleaer imaging methods and their translation to the clinic. This research is highly multidisciplinary combining MR physics and engineering, signal processing and information theory, biochemistry, and medicine with the goal of imaging metabolism in the human body. Our primary areas of current research are MR spectroscopic imaging (MRSI) of hyperpolarized 13C-labeled substrates, measurement of brain neuroenergetics and neurotransmitter cycling, volumetric 1H MRSI, and GABA spectroscopy.
