    Postdoctoral Research Fellow, Radiological Sciences Laboratory

    BioDr. Erpeng Dai mainly focuses on technique development for high-resolution and high-efficiency diffusion MRI (dMRI). Previously, he optimized the navigator acquisition for multi-shot interleaved EPI dMRI and further combined it with simultaneous multi-slice (SMS) for improved scan efficiency. Meanwhile, he also merged SMS and multi-slab techniques to achieve high-resolution isotropic imaging. Currently, Erpeng Dai is mainly working on developing high-fidelity and high-resolution dMRI, cortical dMRI and microstructure studies.

    Postdoctoral Research Fellow, Radiology

    BioI am a postdoctoral research fellow at Stanford School of Medicine in the Department of Radiology. My primary research focus is in the development of cutting-edge technological innovations for imaging and noninvasive targeted drug delivery based on ultrasound. I strive to implement tools with high potential for clinical translation and aim at producing a substantial impact on the clinical practice.

    At the moment, I am working on the systematic and noninvasive manipulation of the nervous system by using focused ultrasound combined with ultrasound-activated drug carriers. In addition, I am implementing functional imaging of brain-wide neuronal activity based on power Doppler ultrasound as a readout of the neuromodulation.

    Postdoctoral Research Fellow, Cardiothoracic Surgery
    Postdoctoral Research Fellow, Radiological Sciences Laboratory

    BioSeraina A. Dual is a postodoctoral fellow at the departments of the Cardiothoracic Surgery at Stanford Medicine and Mechanical Engineering at Stanford University, mentored by Prof. Doff McElHinney, Prof. Daniel Ennis, and Prof. Alison Marsden. She graduated with a Bachelor's degree from the Federal Institute of Technology Zurich (ETH Zurich) in Mechanical Engineering, a master's degree at ETH Zurich in Mechanical Engineering with a specialization in robotics and biomedical application with Prof. Roger Gassert, and her Dr. of science at ETH Zurich in Mechanical Engineering with Prof. Mirko Meboldt. During this time, she spent some time with Prof. Ellen Kuhl at Stanford University (BSc), with Prof. Theo Chee Leong at National University of Singapore (MSc), and with Prof. Christopher Hayward at the St. Vincent's Hospital in Sydney (DSc). Her work focuses on developing dynamic systems, algorithms, and sensors inspired by her background in engineering and control methodology to either improve our pathophysiological understanding of disease or enable physiological interaction of patients with intelligent medical devices.
