Janine Lupo, PhD

Principal Investigator

Research Interests: MRI, quantitative analysis, imaging biomarker discovery

Dr. Lupo’s research focuses on the development and application of novel MR imaging data acquisition, processing, and analysis techniques for the evaluation of patients with brain tumors and other neurological diseases using our research 3T and 7T whole body scanners. This includes the development of quantitative algorithms critical for processing data from advanced acquisitions for patient studies, implementation of statistical models to relate imaging markers with biological characteristics from pathology and clinical outcome in order to both identify patients who would benefit most for a given therapy, and monitor the effects of therapy over time on tumor control, normal brain tissue structure, and cognition.
