    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.

    Current Research and Scholarly InterestsMy work aims to integrate multimodal ex vivo imaging data, including histology, specimen MRI, and advanced microscopy to characterize iron-mediated neuroinflammation in Alzheimer’s disease. The ultimate goal of this work is to better understand the complex pathological picture of Alzheimer's disease and translate these ex vivo findings to in vivo MRI and MR/PET of patients to identify and develop robust imaging-based biomarkers of disease and identify novel therapeutic targets.
