    Casual - Non-Exempt, Rad/Integrative Biomedical Imaging Informatics at Stanford

    BioI am a research engineer in the Integrative Biomedical Imaging Informatics group at Stanford (IBIIS). My work involves the development of artificial intelligence and machine learning algorithms for applications in:
    1. Computer Vision
    2. Medical Imaging
    3. Biomedical Informatics

    I received my Master’s in Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) from The University of Texas at Austin, advised by Dr. Jon Tamir. During my MS in ECE, I completed a research internship at Amazon Health, exploring the application of large language models (LLMs) in clinical text summarization tasks. Previously, I graduated with a Master of Science in Information Technology (MSITM) from The University of Texas at Austin and completed my capstone project at Dell Technologies, as a Machine Learning Engineer.

  • Raag Airan

    Raag Airan

    Assistant Professor of Radiology (Neuroimaging and Neurointervention) and, by courtesy, of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences and of Materials Science and Engineering

    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.

  • Israt Alam

    Israt Alam

    Senior Research Scientist-Basic Life, Rad/Molecular Imaging Program at Stanford

    BioResearch Focus and interests: Molecular Imaging, PET, Immuno-Oncology, Graft versus Host Disease, CAR T cells

    Dr. Israt Alam is a Senior Scientist in the Radiology Department at Stanford University. She trained in Prof. Sanjiv Sam Gambhir's lab and transitioned to Dr. Michelle James' lab in 2021. Her research focuses on studying lymphocyte activation with the motivation of developing non-invasive imaging tools, to monitor immune dynamics in response to cancer immunotherapy and in immunopathology. Her work has supported the clinical translation of several nuclear imaging agents (small molecules and a biologic) for early detection of cancer and prediction of treatment response. She has also worked on several biomarker detection platforms for early disease detection. She is currently co-chair of the "Imaging in cell and immune therapies" (ICIT) interest group for the World Molecular Imaging Society (WMIS).

  • Giacomo Annio

    Giacomo Annio

    Affiliate, Rad/Pediatric Radiology
    Visiting Postdoctoral Scholar, Rad/Pediatric Radiology

    BioI am a physicist by training (MSc) with a strong focus on Applied Biomechanics. I earned a Master of Research in Medical Imaging and obtained an EPSRC fellowship to carry out my PhD in University College London, collaborating actively with the Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children. My scientific career has granted me a diverse background embedding imaging and diagnostic methodologies at microscopical level (nanotechnology) and at macroscopic level (using MRI).

    I developed a highly international character, having studied and worked in 5 countries (Italy, France, United Kingdom, Norway and United States), participating in research funded by international grants and collaborate with numerous institution across the world.

    I recently received a Horizon Marie Curie Global Fellowship from the European Commission which is funding the project GLIOBID: Guiding glioblastoma treatments by decrypting tumour biomechanics via Magnetic Resonance Elastography (more details here https://cordis.europa.eu/project/id/101068340).
    This project will be carried out at Stanford under the supervision of Prof. Heike Daldrup-Link and combined synergistically with Theragnostic cutting-edge technologies.

  • Victoria (Tori) Arendt

    Victoria (Tori) Arendt

    Affiliate, Department Funds
    Resident in Rad/Interventional Radiology

    BioTori grew up in Cleveland, Ohio and attended Duke University, where she majored in Biology and minored in Computer Science. After graduation, she moved to San Diego, where she worked at a biotechnology company researching stabilization of blood products at room temperature. In 2014, she moved to Palo Alto and began medical school at Stanford. During medical school, she worked with Dr. Rusty Hofmann in interventional radiology researching best practices in venous interventions, leading to multiple publications and presentations at SIR. After graduating from medical school in 2018, she began her general surgery intern year at the Cleveland Clinic and after a year in Cleveland, she returned to the California sunshine to begin radiology residency in July 2019. Tori continues to be active in her research into the treatment of venous disease. Outside of residency, she also enjoys hiking around northern California, traveling the world, running, and reading all types of books.

  • Robin Augustine

    Robin Augustine

    Basic Life Research Scientist, Rad/Pediatric Radiology

    Current Role at StanfordDr. Robin Augustine's current research interests revolve around three fascinating areas: graphene-based bioscaffolds, islet transplantation, and synchronized cellular response.

    In the field of graphene-based bioscaffolds, Dr. Augustine actively explores the potential of graphene as a biomaterial for tissue engineering. With its unique properties, graphene offers exceptional opportunities for developing innovative bioscaffolds. Dr. Augustine aims to design and engineer graphene-based materials that can provide structural support, promote cellular adhesion and growth, and enhance tissue regeneration. Leveraging the exceptional properties of graphene, such as its mechanical strength, electrical conductivity, and biocompatibility, Dr. Augustine's goal is to contribute to the development of advanced bioscaffolds for various applications in regenerative medicine.

    Another area of Dr. Augustine's research focuses on islet transplantation, particularly in the context of treating diabetes. Islet transplantation holds promise as a potential cure for type 1 diabetes, involving the transfer of insulin-producing islet cells into the recipient's pancreas. Dr. Augustine investigates strategies to optimize islet transplantation techniques, improve the long-term viability of transplanted islets, and enhance their functionality. The ultimate objective is to contribute to the development of more effective and sustainable approaches for islet transplantation, with the aim of improving the quality of life for individuals living with diabetes.

    Dr. Augustine also explores the field of synchronized cellular response, recognizing its crucial role in tissue development, regeneration, and repair. The focus is on understanding and manipulating the synchronized cellular response in complex tissue systems. By studying the intricate signaling pathways and cellular interactions, Dr. Augustine aims to identify key factors and mechanisms that regulate coordinated cellular behavior. This knowledge can inform the development of strategies to enhance tissue regeneration and repair processes, potentially leading to improved outcomes in various biomedical applications.

    Through research in graphene-based bioscaffolds, islet transplantation, and synchronized cellular response, Dr. Augustine strives to contribute to the advancement of tissue engineering, regenerative medicine, and the development of innovative therapies for complex medical challenges.
