Dr. Golby’s project will leverage existing investments in building health care infrastructure and will seek to advance biomedical technologies in settings with limited resources. The Fulbright Scholar Program supports activities and projects that recognize and promote the critical relationship between educational exchange and international understanding, in addition to the intellectual merit of the proposals.
Lauren O'Donnell, PhD, of the Department of Radiology, and Yogesh Rathi, PhD, of the Department of Psychiatry and the Department of Radiology, received a National Institutes of Health (NIH) RO1 grant for their research project, “Mapping the Superficial White Matter Connectome of the Human Brain Using Ultra-High-Resolution Multi-Contrast Diffusion MRI.”
In their project, O’Donnell and Rathi will study the organization of the brain’s superficial white matter, a layer of white matter below the cortical sheet that is integral to brain connectivity.
Tina Kapur, PhD, of the Department of Radiology and Andrew Goldsmith, MD, MBA, of the Department of Emergency Medicine, received capital funding from the Massachusetts Life Sciences Center (MLSC) for their research project, “Artificial Intelligence Guidance for High-Yield Point-of-Care Ultrasound Applications.”
Under the Baker-Polito Administration, MLSC is distributing over $18 million in capital funding that will be put toward 15 innovative research projects seeking to expand the field of life sciences. Partnering with Centaur Labs, a provider of medical data...
