    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.

    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.

    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.

    Postdoctoral Scholar, Radiological Sciences Laboratory

    BioKoray Ertan received his BSc degree in the Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering at Bilkent University, Turkey. He completed his PhD in the same department under the supervision of Prof. Ergin Atalar. During his PhD, he worked as a researcher at National Magnetic Resonance Research Center (UMRAM) of Turkey. His thesis study is the development of novel magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) technologies such as gradient array systems for increasing diagnostic quality of the MR images, reducing the specific absorption rate and scan time.

    He joined Prof. Brian Rutt's group as a postdoctoral researcher in April 2019. Later, he was also affilated as a MINDED postdoctoral fellow in June 2019. As part of the MINDED program, his current research focuses on a system for modulating the permeability of the blood brain barrier using focused radio frequency heating generated from ultra-high field MRI transmit coils for enhanced treatment of neurodevelopmental disorders with nanomedicines. Additionally, his research interest mostly includes MRI technolgies such as RF pulse design, gradient systems, field monitoring, multi-coil gradient and shim arrays.
