Abstract

This lecture will highlight the development of multiscale and multimodality imaging approaches in conjunction with novel computational and visualization tools to revolutionize our understanding of the role of blood vessels in cancer, tissue engineering and neuroscience applications. This lecture will showcase new functional imaging methods; image-based systems biology approaches; and the design of new imaging systems and software tools for characterizing the vascular microenvironment. Collectively, these innovations herald a new era in “image-based” phenotyping in preclinical models.

Biography

Dr. Arvind P. Pathak is Associate Professor of Radiology and Oncology at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine and a member of the Johns Hopkins Kimmel Cancer Center. His work focuses on developing new imaging methods, computational models and visualization tools to ‘make visible’ critical aspects of cancer, neurobiology and tissue engineering.

Dr. Pathak received his BS in electronics engineering from the University of Poona, India, in 1993, and in 2001 completed his PhD in Functional Imaging from the joint graduate program between the Biophysics Department at the Medical College of Wisconsin and the Biomedical Engineering Dept at Marquette University. During his PhD he was the recipient of a Whitaker Fellowship. After a postdoctoral fellowship in the Molecular Imaging Program at Johns Hopkins University, he joined the Johns Hopkins faculty in 2003.

Dr. Pathak’s research has been recognized by several awards and journal covers. These include the Bill Negendank Young Investigator Award from the International Society for Magnetic Resonance in Medicine (ISMRM) given to “outstanding young investigators in the field of cancer MR” and the ISMRM’s Outstanding Teacher Award for 2014. He has advised over sixty students and is a much sought after mentor.

Vernon Rice Memorial Turkey Program
Oct 13 – Dec 11 all-day
Vernon Rice Memorial Turkey Program

As of November 2, 2020, the INBT has donated 5 meals to the Vernon Rice Memorial Drive!

The INBT is pleased to participate for a third year with the Johns Hopkins community in the Vernon Rice Memorial Turkey Program, which supports the Baltimore community. For every $25 raised, a basket with a fresh turkey and vegetables from a local farm will be provided to a family in need. In the past two years, the INBT has provided 31 meals to families in need. Learn more about Vernon Rice, the program, and how to donate.

Donations for the Thanksgiving holiday are due November 13, 2020. Donations for the December holidays are due December 11, 2020. If you donate, email Gina at ginawadas@jhu.edu so we can continue tracking how many meals we supported.

Advances in Immunoengineering: Fundamentals and Cutting Edge Advances Workshop @ Virtual
Jan 5 @ 4:00 pm – Jan 28 @ 5:30 pm
Advances in Immunoengineering: Fundamentals and Cutting Edge Advances Workshop @ Virtual

The Johns Hopkins Translational Immunoengineering is hosting a workshop series in January.

The field of immunoengineering combines the diverse and complex fields of engineering and immunology and is transforming patient treatment in cancer, autoimmunity, regeneration, and transplantation. There is a significant need for training of engineers in immunology and for training immunologists in quantitative engineering techniques. Moreover, there is need to bridge basic immunological discoveries with advances in clinical application. This course will review the fundamentals of the immune system and its components, engineering strategies to modulate the immune system, and clinical applications. This workshop series is also being offered for CME credit and as a two-credit course for Hopkins students.

Go to their website to see schedule, speakers, topics, and registration information.
