Conferences, Lectures, & Seminars
Speaker: Dr. Arion Chatziioannou, PhD , University of California, Los Angeles.
Talk Title: In Search for the "Perfect" Preclinical PET System
Series: Medical Imaging Seminar Series
Biography: Dr. Hadjioannou has a background in Biomedical Imaging Physics, with specific training in molecular imaging. As a post-doctoral fellow, he worked with Dr. Cherry towards the development of the original microPET preclinical imaging tomograph into a practical tool. That was followed by his appointment as the Director of the Preclinical Imaging Center at the UCLA Crump Institute for Molecular Imaging. In that position he helped mature the Imaging Center, and expand its capabilities to include microCT and optical bioluminescence imaging. In 2001, he joined the faculty ranks of the Department of Molecular and Medical Pharmacology at the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA. In 2008 he was appointed as the Associate Director of the Crump Institute for Molecular Imaging and Vice Chair of the Department of Molecular and Medical Pharmacology at UCLA. His research focuses on the development of instrumentation, methodologies and mathematical algorithms, for high resolution, quantitati ve in-v ivo preclinical imaging. He has been the PI and Co-PI in a number of NIH funded projects, that involve the development and use of these technologies, while a number of the technologies his lab has developed have been commercialized.
