Professor of Medicine (Cardiovascular) and of Radiology (Cardiovascular Imaging)
BioDr. Salerno completed his BS in Biological Engineering at Cornell University, and his MD and PhD in Biomedical Engineering at the University of Virginia as part of the Medical Scientist Training Program. He then completed the American Board of Internal Medicine Research Pathway with an Internal Medicine residency at Stanford University, and his general cardiology fellowship at Duke University Medical Center. During his time at Duke he completed a dedicated year in cardiovascular MRI at the Duke Cardiovascular MR Imaging Center. He returned to UVA in 2008 to complete a 2-year advanced cardiovascular imaging fellowship where he trained in CMR and cardiovascular CTA. He achieved COCATS Level III training in all cardiovascular imaging modalities (Echo, Nuclear, CMR, CCT), and is board certified in Echocardiography and Nuclear Cardiology. He served as faculty at UVA in Cardiology, Radiology, and Biomedical Engineering from 2010-2021 where he was the Director of Cardiac MRI and the Medical Director of Echocardiography, before returning to Stanford.
His research involves the development and evaluation of novel MRI pulse sequences and techniques to improve the clinical utility of CMR imaging. The current focus of the research is on quantitative myocardial perfusion imaging, quantitative imaging of myocardial fibrosis, rapid free-breathing and self-gated imaging, and deep learning for image reconstruction and post-processing. His laboratory includes undergraduate and graduate engineering students as well as clinical cardiovascular imaging fellows to bring new advances into clinical practice. Dr. Salerno has been in the field of MRI for 25 years and holds multiple patents related to the development and application of novel pulse sequences for MRI. He has received numerous research awards, and has published extensively in the areas of MRI, cardiovascular MRI and multi-modality cardiovascular imaging. His research has been supported by the AHA and the National Institutes of health. He is a deputy editor for JACC Cardiovascular Imaging.
Outside of work, Dr. Salerno enjoys sailing, rock climbing, skiing, running, biking, hiking, and spending time with his wife Cherie, and his two boys Christopher and Joseph.

Georg Alexander Schramm
Visiting Instructor/Lecturer, Radiology
BioGeorg is a visiting instructor in the lab of Fernando Boada at RSL since 2022 focussing mainly on medical image reconstruction.
He obtained in Master in Nuclear Physics from TU Dresden in Germany in 2011. His master thesis project "Analysis and Simulation of Photon Scattering and Neutron Capture
Gamma Spectra" was performed at Helmholtz-Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf in the lab of Dr. Andreas Wagner.
In 2015, Georg completed his PhD with summa cum laude in the lab of Prof. Jörg van den Hoff at Helmholtz-Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf / TU Dresden
where he focussed on "Evaluation and Improvement of MR-based Attenuation Correction for PET/MR".
From 2015 to 2022, Georg worked as a postdoctoral fellow in the lab of Prof. Johan Nuyts at KU Leuven, Belgium, where he mostly worked on image reconstruction problems in PET/MR and PET/CT imaging.
In the lab of Fernando Boada at RSL, Georg's research focuses on improving the reconstruction of sodium MR images.
Professor of Radiology, Emeritus
Current Research and Scholarly InterestsScintigraphic evaluation of coronary blood flow and myocardial function using single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) and positron emission tomography (PET). Tumor imaging and characterization of pulmonary nodules with PET/CT.
Associate Professor of Radiology (Radiological Sciences Laboratory) and, by courtesy, of Electrical Engineering
BioKawin Setsompop is an Associate Professor of Radiology and, by courtesy, of Electrical Engineering. His research focuses on the development of novel MRI acquisition methods, with the goal of creating imaging technologies that can be used to help better understand brain structure and function for applications in Healthcare and Health sciences. He received his Master’s degree in Engineering Science from Oxford University and his PhD in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science from MIT. Prior to joining Stanford, he was a postdoctoral fellow and subsequently a faculty at the A.A. Martinos center for biomedical imaging, MGH, as well as part of the Harvard and MIT faculty. His group has pioneered several widely-used MRI acquisition technologies, a number of which have been successfully translated into FDA-approved clinical products on Siemens, GE, Phillips, United Imaging and Bruker MRI scanners worldwide. These technologies are being used daily to study the brain in both clinical and neuroscientific fields.
