Prof. Abbas Alavi

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Abbas Alavi is Professor of Radiology and Neurology, as well as Director of Research Education in the Department of Radiology at the University of Pennsylvania.Dr. Alavi is a physician-scientist specializing in the field of molecular imaging, most notably in the imaging modality of positron emission tomography (PET). In August 1976, he became the first to perform human PET studies of the brain and whole body using the radio tracer 18 Fluorodeoxyglucose.
Alavi is the recipient of many awards and distinctions among which are the highest distinctions in nuclear medicine: the Georg Charles de Hevesy Nuclear Pioneer Award given by the Society of Nuclear Medicine, and the Cassen Prize of the Society of Nuclear Medicine. This prize is given to living scientists whose work has led to a major advance in basic or clinical nuclear medicine science. The de Hevesy Award from the Society of Nuclear Medicine was given to Alavi for his pioneering work in the development of positron emission tomography.
Prof Alavi has been a major force in promoting nuclear imaging in Iran over the years and for us at the Shahid Beheshti University in the recent years. He is a sources of inspiration for many young doctors and scientists world wide.

Prof. Paul Thompson

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Prof Thompson, directs the ENIGMA Center for Worldwide Medicine, Imaging & Genomics – a U.S. National Center of Excellence for “Big Data” analysis in biomedical research. Since 2009, Dr Thompson has led the ENIGMA consortium (http://enigma.usc.edu), a worldwide medical network of 340 institutions across 35 countries studying the major diseases of the brain, with MRI, diffusion MRI, resting state fMRI, EEG and genomics. ENIGMA has published the largest neuroimaging studies of 8 major brain disorders – including schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, major depression, ADHD and OCD – and leads international studies of Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, epilepsy, PTSD, anorexia, substance use, and anxiety disorders. In ENIGMA’s series of papers in Nature, Nature Neuroscience, and Nature Communications, 340 institutions pooled DNA and MRI data from over 40,000 people to identify over 100 genomic loci that influence brain structure, function and disease risk using massively-parallel distributed “big data” computing (Medland Nature Neuroscience 2015). ENIGMA analyzes factors that affect Alzheimer’s disease progression, schizophrenia, depression and bipolar illness, HIV/AIDS, substance abuse, autism, and childhood brain disorders.

Dr. Thompson’s group created the first MRI maps of Alzheimer’s disease and schizophrenia spreading in the living brain, and a method to detect brain growth in children (published in the journal Nature). Thompson directs the Imaging Genetics Center and is Associate Director of USC’s new Stevens Institute for Neuroimaging and Informatics. At USC, he is a Professor of Neurology, Psychiatry, Radiology, Pediatrics, and Engineering. Dr. Thompson obtained his M.A. in Mathematics and Greek & Latin Languages from Oxford University, England, and his Ph.D. in Neuroscience from UCLA. His team of 20 researchers includes students in neuroscience, genetics, biomedical engineering, and biomedical physics. Collaborating with over 300 imaging labs around the world, Dr. Thompson’s 1,600 published research papers combine the talents of researchers in mathematics, neuroimaging, and clinical neurology (see http://igc.ini.usc.edu).

Dr. Nahid Zokaei

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Dr Zokaei is a research fellow at the Oxford Centre for Human Brain Activity (OHBA), affiliated with the Brain & Cognition Lab, funded by the British Academy.

She completed her undergraduate studies and a PhD in Clinical Neurology (funded by the Brain Research Trust) at UCL before moving to University of Oxford as a postdoctoral fellow.

Her research focuses on understanding memory and attention in both health and disease. She combines psychophysical methods with non-invasive brain imaging techniques (MEG and MRI) and brain stimulation (TMS) to examine the neuromodulation of memory and attention in healthy individuals and their deficits in patients with neurodegenerative disorders such as Parkinson’s disease and Alzheimer’s disease and those at risk of neurodegeneration.

More specifically, she is currently investigating the cognitive profile of individuals at risk of Alzheimer’s disease, that is individuals with different alleles of the ApoE gene, using tasks of short and long-term memories. Furthermore, using MEG and MRI in combination with behavioural measures of attention, working memory and timing, she aims to provide a more comprehensive neural, oscillatory and cognitive fingerprint of Parkinson’s disease.

A key priority in research on neurodegenerative disorders is to identify the disease as its earliest stages. My research therefore aims to identify cognitive and neural biomarkers that can aid early diagnosis as well as treatment monitoring in patients.[/vc_column_text][vc_message icon_fontawesome=”fa fa-address-card-o”]https://scholar.google.co.uk/citations?user=6HrDF-QAAAAJ&hl=en[/vc_message][/vc_column][/vc_row]
