Research activities

We are developing and applying a range of technologies to study oxygen levels in tissues and how these relate to disease processes. By using a combination of imaging and histological studies, we aim to determine how the brain adapts to hypoxia, and to apply that knowledge to the treatment of conditions such as multiple sclerosis, stroke, cancer and concussion. My lab specializes in the use of MRI for small animal imaging as well as the application of near-infrared spectroscopy to study tissue oxygenation and brain functional activity in animal models and patients. We study white matter degeneration, vascular adaptation and molecular imaging and functional imaging.
