BioDr. Rajib Ahmed working as a postdoctoral researcher at Stanford University School of Medicine, Canary Center at Stanford for Cancer Early Detection. His research focus on micro- and nano-technologies based biomedical cost-effective nanophotonic devices.
Rajib received his B.Sc. and M.Sc. degree at the department of Applied Physics Electronics and Communication Engineering in 2010 and 2012 from University of Dhaka (Bangladesh), and also studied two-year double degree M.Sc. as a Erasmus mundus student at MAsters on Photonic NETworks Engineering (MAPNET) on in Scuola Superiore Sant’Anna (Italy), Aston University (UK), and Technische Univeraitat Berlin (Germany) in 2013-2014. He received his Ph.D. degree on laser based nanofabrication from school of engineering, University of Birmingham (UK) in 2018. Upon the completion of his Ph.D. studies, Rajib started working as a postdoctoral researcher at Stanford University School of Medicine in 2018.
Rajib has published his research work in the most prestigious journals (more than 50), including Advanced Materials, Advanced Science, ACS Nano, Light: Science & Applications, Advanced Optical Materials, SMALL, Advanced Healthcare Materials, Scientific Reports, Nanoscale, ACS Photonics, Optics Express, Optics Letter, Applied Physics Letter, etc. Besides his research publications, he has contributed to the publication of 4 book chapters, 1 patent (under consideration), and also working as a scientific journal editors and reviewers. His research findings have been presented in national and international conferences (over 25).

Current Research and Scholarly InterestsOur goal is to develop and clinically implement new technologies for high-precision and noninvasive intervention upon the nervous system. Every few millimeters of the brain is functionally distinct, and different parts of the brain may have counteracting responses to therapy. To better match our therapies to neuroscience, we develop techniques that allow intervention upon only the right part of the nervous system at the right time, using technologies like focused ultrasound and nanotechnology.

BioI graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Elecrical & Electronics Engineering from Boğaziçi University, Istanbul, Turkey and got my M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in Electical Engineering at Stanford University under the supervision of Dr. Roland Bammer. Currently, I am working as a research associate in the department of Radiology at Stanford University. My primary research interest is the detection and correction of patient motion during magnetic resonance imaging experiments usıng an optical tracking system (i.e., a camera) whıch is installed inside the MR scanner bore. My eventual purpose is to implement this motion tracking system in a clinical setting, which will improve the MR image quality especially for certain patient populations (stroke patients, elderly and children) and will eliminate the need of anesthesia in pediatric population. I also worked on improving the data quality for diffusion-weighted and diffusion-tensor imaging via advanced reconstruction routines, and examined the benefits of such methods on fiber tractography.

Dr. Israt Alam is a Research Scientist at the Radiology Department at Stanford University in Prof. Sanjiv Sam Gambhir's lab. Her research focuses on studying lymphocyte activation with the motivation of developing non-invasive imaging tools, to monitor immune dynamics in response to immunotherapy and for diagnosis of immune driven diseases. Her work has supported the clinical translation of several nuclear imaging agents for early disease diagnosis and prediction of treatment response for improved patient management.
