Current projects include developing innovative imaging and analysis methods to: study: i) the effects of chemotherapy on neurocognitive function in cancer patients, ii) breast cancer and lymph node metastasis and treatment response, iii) neurodegenerative diseases, iv) diabetic retinopathy and glaucoma, and v) COVID-19 and COVID-19 sequela. While many of our projects include imaging, we use transdisciplinary approaches to tackle clinically impactful problems. Our group has and needs expertise in neuroscience, clinical sciences, and other disease domain expertise, in addition to imaging methods and image analysis. These projects are funded by multiple R01 grants
