Sridhar Vajapeyam, PhD
300 Longwood Avenue
Dr. Vajapeyam's research interests are in the areas of MR image and data processing, with special emphasis on brain tumors and diffusion. His research goals include:
- Developing image and data analysis methods for magnetic resonance imaging and magnetic resonance spectroscopy
- Studying white matter development of the human brain in infancy and childhood
- Diffusion tensor imaging and tractography in the human brain
- Applications of magnetic resonance methods for the characterization, assessment and treatment of human brain neoplasms
