Our Mission

  • Create and provide imaging methods that can be used longitudinally, from birth through adulthood 
  • Lead the field of pediatric pulmonary imaging through advanced and quantitative techniques, including hyperpolarized 3He and 129Xe MRI, UTE MRI, and multi-volume CT
  • Broaden the understanding of regional structure and function and how these are altered by pulmonary diseases
  • Perform and encourage multi-disciplinary, translational research in humans and animal models of disease
