Neuroimaging Core Faculty

Peter van Zijl, Ph.D.
Peter van Zijl serves as the director of the Neuroimaging Core. Dr. van Zijl is a professor of Radiology, Oncology, and Biophysics and the founding director of the F.M. Kirby Research Center for Functional Brain Imaging at Kennedy Krieger.

 

 

Stewart Mostofsky, M.D.
Stewart Mostofsky is core faculty. He is a professor in the Department of Neurology at Johns Hopkins and a child neurologist at Kennedy Krieger Institute. Dr. Mostofsky’s role within the core emphasizes consultation on all aspects of functional imaging.

 

 

James Pekar, Ph.D.
James Pekar is core faculty. He is a professor of Radiology at Johns Hopkins and the manager of the F.M. Kirby Research Center for Functional Brain Imaging. He has an active role in developing and implementing innovative techniques in fMRI applications and data analysis, including functional connectivity.

 

 

Susumu Mori, Ph.D.
Susumu Mori is core faculty. He is a professor of Radiology at Johns Hopkins and has been an innovator in the field of MRI white matter tractography (MRT) and techniques that utilize diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) data to depict the trajectories of white matter bundles. Dr. Mori also supervises the small animal high field MRI imaging facilities.

 

 

John Desmond, Ph.D.
John Desmond is core faculty. He is a professor of Neurology at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, and the Director of the NeuroImaging and Modulation LABoratory (NIMLAB) at Johns Hopkins. Dr. Desmond’s research focuses on neuroimaging and transcranial magnetic stimulation methods to investigate neural correlates of behavior.

 

 

Richard A.E. Edden, M.Sc., Ph.D.
Richard Edden is core faculty.  He is Professor of Radiology and Radiological Science at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. Dr. Edden’s research is concerned with both the development of new MRS methods and the application of existing methods to investigate the brain.

 

 

Doris Lin, M.D., Ph.D.
Doris Lin is core faculty.  She is an Associate Professor of Radiology and Radiological Science at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. An important aspect of her research involves incorporating her background in molecular biology into radiology. Dr. Lin intends to develop neuroimaging tools targeting cellular and molecular processes that are amenable to noninvasive in vivo imaging.
