Visiting speakers

John Kurhanewicz, Ph.D., is a professor of radiology and biomedical Imaging, and pharmaceutical chemistry at University of California, San Francisco. He has led efforts to develop new imaging biomarkers using spectroscopy and MR metabolic imaging.

Shawn Chen, Ph.D., is a senior investigator at the National Institutes of Health/National Institute of Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering where he is the chief for the Laboratory for Molecular Imaging and Nanomedicine.

Kenneth Krohn, Ph.D., is a professor of radiology and radiation oncology at the University of Washington where he also serves as the associate director for the Cancer Imaging Program.  He has been a pioneer in the development of radionuclide probes and their integration into pre-clinical and clinical research programs.
