FASNR Research Scientist Award

The ASNR Research Scientist Award has allowed me to collect data that was used to apply for, and win, the 2016 Irving Institute Imaging Pilot Award. This award will be used to test whether the signal to noise of the BOLD biomarker can be further improved by using hypercapnia. Finally, I am currently writing an R01 proposal for submission for the Feb 5th deadline. The aims of the proposal are to collect localized biopsies in glioblastoma and low grade glioma and determine whether regions that are high BOLD/low FLAIR and high FLAIR/low BOLD are histological different and identify different mechanisms of tumor infiltration. Neither the Irving Institute Imaging Award or the R01 proposal would have been possible without the ASNR Research Scientist Award. I am deeply grateful for the opportunity that ASNR gave me.
