Dynamic MRI of cerebral physiology to probe brain function and vascular health
Dr. Audrey Fan is an Assistant Professor of Biomedical Engineering and Neurology at the University of California, Davis. She received her Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science from M.I.T. and was a postdoctoral fellow and Instructor at Stanford University.
Dr. Fan is a recipient of a K99/R00 Pathway to Independence Award and the R21 Trailblazer Award from the NIH. She currently co-leads the Imaging Core for the Alzheimer’s Disease Research Center at UC Davis Health. Her overall goal is to bridge engineers in my lab with clinicians and scientists to advance neuroimaging technology and promote brain vascular health across the entire lifespan.
The human brain depends on continuous blood flow to deliver the oxygen and nutrients it needs to function. Disruption to this oxygen supply has devastating consequences, not only in cerebrovascular disease but in many neurodegenerative and psychiatric disorders. A major research goal of our group is thus to develop non-invasive imaging methods to understand brain vascular dynamics in health and disease.
