Brownell Lab

The Brownell Lab research focuses on the glutamatergic system in the brain, as it relates to sensorimotor and cognitive problems. They are investigating PET ligands that can be used to aid in treatment development.

Brugarolas Lab

The focus of the Brugarolas Lab is to develop new small molecule PET radioligands for brain disorders and immunoPET. They are particularly interested in developing tracers for potassium channels in the brain to image multiple sclerosis and tracers for calcium channels to image epilepsy and pain.

El Fakhri Lab

Research includes imaging science aspects as they pertain to instrumentation, quantitative imaging and analysis methods for PET, CT, MR, and SPECT simulations, kinetic modeling, image reconstruction etc. with applications in brain, cardiac and oncological imaging as well as radionuclide therapy and proton beam therapy.

Johnson Lab

The Johnson Lab focuses on imaging neurodegenerative disorders. More specifically, the lab is developing preventive therapies and treatment of Alzheimer's disease symptoms.

Papisov Lab

The Papisov lab focuses on the following research topics: investigation of in vivo transport processes, development and characterization of macromolecular and supramolecular therapeutics, novel biomaterials, and drug delivery to cancer and central nervous system.

Sabet Lab

Research activities in Sabet Lab fall into the category of radiation physics and instrumentation that span over many areas of medical and non-medical applications. These projects mainly fit into development of high-performance and advanced radiation detectors by rigorously studying and addressing fundamental limitations of current radiation detector systems.

Sepulcre Lab

The Sepulcre lab focuses on brain imaging studies aiming at the understanding of large-scale brain networks implicated in human cognition and neurodegenerative disorders.

Zaman Lab

The Zaman Lab's mission is to overcome the limitation of the currently available clinical imaging systems for detection of coronary artery disease (CAD).

Zhu Lab

The Zhu lab is investigating ways in which PET imaging can be used to verify the delivery of proton therapy immediately after treatment, and ways in which imaging can generally be used to improve radiation therapy
