Bruce Rosen, Director
Dr. Rosen has shaped the Athinoula A. Martinos Center for Biomedical Imaging since its establishment in 1989. In the more than 25 years of the Center he has overseen a number of advances, including the introduction, refinement and application of functional MRI (fMRI); implementation of a range of multimodal approaches; the development of imaging methods like optical imaging and transcranial magnetic stimulation; and more. He has also led important research programs based at the Martinos Center: not least, the NIH-funded Center for Functional Neuroimaging Technologies and the Biomedical Informatics Research Network, or BIRN.
His own research has focused on the development and application of physiological and functional NMR techniques, addressing the ways in which functional imaging tools can be applied to solve specific biological and clinical problems as well as basic science questions about, for example, the connections between neuronal and physiological events during neuronal activity.
