- David Sosnovik elected as the 2020-2021 Chair of the cardiac study group of the International Society for Magnetic Resonance in Medicine (ISMRM). The ISMRM has over 8000 members many of whom focus on cardiovascular MRI and are represented by the cardiac study section. Congratulations David and best wishes for a successful term as chair!
- Sandeep Murthy leaves CVRC to begin Medical School at the University of Virginia. Congratulations and best wishes Sandeep!
- Nguyen lab plays a key role in a paper published in Science Robotics. The paper tilted, ”An organosynthetic dynamic heart model with enhanced biomimicry guided by cardiac diffusion tensor imaging” describes the collaborative effort between Ellen Roche at MIT and the Nguyen lab to develop biomaterials to augment cardiac function. Congratulations Ellen and Chris!
- Sally Ji Who Kim PhD, joins the Sosnovik lab as an Instructor in Medicine at HMS, and joins the CABBI faculty. Welcome aboard, Sally!
- Robert Kitchen, PhD receives the Hassenfeld Cardiovascular Scholars award. This generous award, supported by Alan and Vivien Hassenfeld, will allow Dr. Kitchen to expand his program in computational biology in the CVRC. Congratulations, Rob!
- Mohammed Mahamdeh PhD, in the Yuan lab at the CVRC, promoted to Instructor in Medicine at HMS and joins the CABBI faculty. Congratulations, Mohammed!
- Chris Nguyen chairs joint SCMR-ISMRM workshop on “Autonomous and Efficient Cardiovascular Magnetic Resonance Imaging” in Orlando Florida. This important annual workshop plays a vital role in creating bridges between the more technical ISMRM and more clinical SCMR communities.
- HST.164, Principles of Biomedical Imaging, directed by David Sosnovik and Susie Huang, reaches its 5-year milestone. Over 150 HST medical students and MIT graduate students have now completed the course. A big thanks to our TAs over the last 5 years, Melissa Haskell and Patrick McDaniel, for making the course so successful!
- CABBI website launches. Design and implementation by Sandeep Murthy, MGH-CVRC
