Dr. Carolyn Meltzer

William P. Timmie Professor and Chair of Radiology and Imaging Sciences, and Associate Dean for Research, Emory University School of Medicine

Dr. Meltzer, a neuroradiologist and nuclear medicine physician, has enjoyed more than 17 years of NIH funding for her work in applying novel advanced imaging strategies to better understand brain structure-function relationships in normal aging, late-life depression, and Alzheimer’s disease. She has authored approximately 200 publications and lectured nationally and internationally.

Dr. Bram Stolk
Dr. Steven Seltzer

Chairman Emeritus, Department of Radiology Brigham and Women’s Hospital

Dr. Seltzer’s clinical interests are in the field of abdominal imaging, particularly advanced applications of helical CT. He has been involved in numerous projects aimed at improving the quality, safety, productivity and cost-effectiveness of radiology services for more than two decades, including spending a 3-month sabbatical as a member of Brooking’s Institution’s Health Policy group, working on two contemporary projects related to federal health care reform.

Steering Committee

Christian Eusemann
Johann Fernando, PhD

Jessica Foley, PhD is the Chief Scientific Officer for the Focused Ultrasound Foundation, whose mission is to accelerate the development and adoption of focused ultrasound, a breakthrough non-invasive medical technology. Foley oversees the Foundation’s scientific and research programs and activities, and aligns these with communications and development efforts. She also leads alliance-building efforts with external stakeholders including (but not limited to) governmental policymakers, regulatory agencies, and disease-specific foundations whose interests are complementary to those of the Foundation. She is a representative and advocate for the Foundation and the focused ultrasound community among a wide variety of stakeholders.

Demetrios Giannikopoulos
Q. Y. Ma, PhD

Professor Ma is the founder of Time Medical Systems Inc., an innovative medical imaging company based on new super-conducting RF technology that improves MRI performance and overall efficiency, as well as dedicated MR systems for new niche markets. The company goal is to expand access to state-of-the-art MRI Diagnostics to patients in emerging and under-served markets.

Richard Mather, PhD

Dr. Rakow-Penner’s research interests include diffusion imaging in the breast and prostate.

Sue Peschin, MHS
Lenny J. Reznik

Lenny Reznik is responsible for Agfa HealthCare’s radiology and enterprise imaging and information systems including Radiology Information Systems (RIS), Picture Archiving and Communication Systems (PACS) and Enterprise Medical Imaging Repository and Visualization solutions.

Jadranka Stojanovska, MD, MS

Dr. Stojanovska is an Assistant Professor of radiology at the University of Michigan on instructional tract. She currently serves as a Director of Cardiovascular MR program. As a physician-scientist her interest in translational research emerged as a post-doctoral research fellow, at the Center for Molecular Imaging at the University of Michigan and her interest in cardiovascular imaging emerged as a cardiothoracic radiology fellow and faculty at the University of Michigan. Her clinical interests include cardiovascular imaging with special focus on cardiac Magnetic resonance and patients outcome. Her research proposal centers on imaging of epicardial adipose tissue to characterize lipid content, inflammation, and fibrosis and correlate this information with metabolomics and histologic samples from patients obtained at the time of their open-heart surgery. The goal is to understand the epicardial adipose tissue biology by integrated approaches of imaging, molecular, genetic, and metabolite profiling for improved risk phenotyping of cardiometabolic health in obesity and design improved management approaches of patients with cardiometabolic disease such as obesity, diabetes, and cardiovascular disease.
