Current Research Projects

P41 RR15241 (van Zijl, P.C.M.) 09/01/01 – 08/31/06

Title: Resource for Quantitative Functional MRI
The major goal is to provide state-of-the-art MRI and MRS data acquisition and image processing technology and unique MR expertise to facilitate
the biomedical research of NIH-funded neuroscientists at several institutions in Maryland and throughout the USA.

R01NS31490 (van Zijl PCM)  03/1/99 -11/30/05
Title: Functional Magnetic Resonance Studies of the Brain
The major goal is to design new NMR Methods for a multi-modality stroke exam. These methods will be developed on the animal scanner and then transferred to the human scanner.

            R21 EB002666 (Zhou, J) 09/01/03 - 08/31/05

Title: Human Brain Protein MR Imaging and Spectroscopy at 3T

The overall goal of this study is to develop novel MRI and MRS methods for studying mobile cellular proteins and their properties in tissue, and to open the possibility of adding intrinsic protein-based contrast to the diagnostic capability of high-field MRI for human brain tumors and other diseases.


Whitaker Foundation (Zhou, J) 05/01/03 – 04/30/06

Title: Development of Novel Magnetic Resonance Imaging and Spectroscopy Mechodologies for Tumor Detection

The goal of this application is to develop a new MRI technique, amide proton transfer (APT) imaging, for animal brain tumor studies.
