“Image-based” Vascular Phenotyping In Cancer, Tissue Engineering And Neuroscience”

Please join us for a seminar with associate faculty member Arvind Pathak. Zoom link to come.

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.
