Shanrong Zhang, Ph.D.

Associate Director, Pre-Clinical Imaging Core

Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) and Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy (MRS)

My research interests relate to develop MRI contrast agents and to use MRI techniques to investigate different disease models. In my career, I had developed a few responsive MRI contrast agents that response to pH, temperature and metabolic levels and also developed a totally new type of MRI contrast agent, known as “PARACEST” (PARAmagnetic Chemical Exchange Saturation Transfer). Since last decade, I have changed my role by running Mouse MRI Core. I am very exciting that I can help investigators from different scientific fields. More recently, I am focusing on MRI neuroimaging techniques, such as Diffusion Tensor Imaging (DTI) and resting-state functional MRI (rsfMRI). Trained in Physical Chemistry, I favor a multidisciplinary approach to solving scientific problems.
