About Us

Our Mission

Our mission is to lead the field of pediatric pulmonary imaging through advanced imaging techniques and multi-nuclear capabilities, including hyperpolarized 3He and 129Xe.  We strive to broaden the understanding of lung structure and function and how these are altered by pulmonary diseases. Furthermore, we encourage collaboration on research that is multi-disciplinary and translational.
