Speakers Overview: Get to Know the Speakers at the Bruker Scientific Workshop

Prof. Kamil Ugurbil

Kamil Ugurbil currently holds the McKnight Presidential Endowed Chair Professorship and is the founding Director of the Center for Magnetic Resonance Research (CMRR) at the University of Minnesota. After completing his B.A. and Ph.D. degrees in physics, and chemical physics, respectively, at Columbia University, New York, N.Y., Prof. Ugurbil joined AT&T Bell Laboratories in 1977, and subsequently returned to Columbia as a faculty member in 1979. He was recruited to the University of Minnesota in 1982 where his research in magnetic resonance led to the evolution of his laboratory into an interdepartmental and interdisciplinary research center, the CMRR. His primary research focus has been the development and application of MR methods and instrumentation towards obtaining high resolution and high accuracy functional and anatomical information in the human brain in particular and development of ultrahigh magnetic fields for human imaging in general. This body of work has culminated in pioneering accomplishments, such as the co-introduction of fMRI, the introduction and development of ultrahigh magnetic fields (defined as ≥7 Tesla), functional mapping of columnar and layer specific functional responses in the human brain, and highly accelerated functional brain imaging. He was one of the two PI’s of the Human Connectome Project and one of the fourteen members of the first BRAIN Initiative working group. He was recognized by several awards and honors including membership in the US National Academy of Medicine, American Academy of Arts and Sciences, ISMRM Gold Medal, Richard R. Ernst Gold Medal, ISMAR Prize, Koç Award, the IEEE Medal for Innovations in Healthcare Technology, and two honorary doctor.

Dr. Tomokazu Tsurugizawa

After obtaining his Ph.D. at the University of Tokyo in 2006, Dr. Tsurugizawa started a career in MRI research on the brain-gut axis using preclinical MRI at Ajinomoto Co. Inc in Japan. He developed an awake rat/mouse fMRI method and successfully visualized brain activity during nutrient perception in the rodent model. In 2014, he joined NeuroSpin, Commissariat à l’Energie Atomique et aux Energies Alternatives (CEA)-Saclay, Gif-sur-Yvette, France, where he developed non-BOLD/BOLD fMRI in rodents using high-field MRI. In 2020, he moved to the University of Tsukuba and to the Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology (AIST) in Japan. His interest is the translational study of the brain function and structure among rodents, macaque monkeys, and humans for understanding the mechanism of the psychiatric disorder as well as cognitive function.

Dr. Philipp Boehm-Sturm

Dr. Philipp Boehm-Sturm completed his physics degree at the University of Cologne before joining the In-vivo-NMR lab at the Max Planck Institute for Neurological Research in Cologne. In 2013 he joined the Center for Stroke Research at the Charité University Medicine Berlin, becoming the group leader of the Experimental MRI in 2015. Since 2020, he is also the speaker for the Experimental MRI at the Charité to support 3R (EPIC3R). His work centers around molecular MRI, diffusion MRI, connectomics, and prediction modeling in animal models of stroke.

Dr. Yu-Chien Wu

Dr. Yu-Chien Wu, MD, PhD, DABMP, earned her MD in Taiwan and her PhD in Medical Physics at the University of Wisconsin-Madison in 2006. Dr. Wu joined IUSM as an Assistant Professor in the Department of Radiology and Imaging Sciences, becoming a tenured Associate Professor in 2019.
Currently, Dr. Wu serves as the Showalter Scholar (2021-2024) at Indiana University School of Medicine, where she holds multiple leadership roles, including Director of In-Vivo Imaging Core at the Indiana Institute for Biomedical Imaging Sciences, Director of Roberts Translational Imaging Facility at STARK Neurosciences Research Institute, and Co-Director of Neuroimaging Core at the Indiana Alzheimer's Disease Research Center. Additionally, she is an Adjunct Associate Professor at the Weldon School of Biomedical Engineering at Purdue University.

Dr. Brian Nieman

Brian Nieman received his B.Sc. from the University of Waterloo (Dept. of Physics) in 2001. He started his working with MRI as part of his graduate studies under the mentorship of Dr. R. Mark Henkelman in the Dept. of Medical Biophysics at University of Toronto, completing his Ph.D. in 2006. He subsequently worked with Dr. Daniel H. Turnbull through a postdoctoral fellowship at the NYU School of Medicine (2006-2009). Brian returned to Toronto in 2009, starting as a Scientist at the Hospital for Sick Children and an Investigator at the Ontario Institute for Cancer Research. Brian is currently a Senior Scientist at the Hospital for Sick Children and an Associate Professor at the University of Toronto (Department of Medical Biophysics). In addition to development of imaging tools for mouse phenotyping, Brian’s research focuses on study of brain development after cancer treatment, including a mix of clinical and preclinical imaging.

Dr. Mallar Chakravarty

Mallar Chakravarty is a Computational Neuroscientist in the Cerebral Imaging Centre at Douglas Research Centre. He is also an Associate Professor in the Department of Psychiatry and an Associate Member of the Department of Biomedical Engineering at McGill University. He also serves as the director of the Douglas Research Centre's Cerebral Imaging Centre and NeuroInformatics Platform.
Dr. Chakravarty received his Bachelor’s Degree in Electrical Engineering from the University of Waterloo and his PhD in Biomedical Engineering from McGill University. He went on to do postdoctoral fellowships in Aarhus, Denmark and, subsequently jointly at the Rotman Research Institute and at the Mouse Imaging Centre (MICe) and the Hospital Sick Children in Toronto, Canada. Between fellowships, Dr. Chakravarty worked at the Allen Institute for Brain Science (Seatte, WA, USA).
He is interested in the anatomy of the brain. His group focuses on how anatomy changes through development, aging, and in illness and how the dynamics of brain anatomy are influenced by genetics and environment.
