Research Collaborations

As manager of the Molecular Imaging Facility (MIF) I have the opportunity to collaborate with several research projects across the campus. Currently these projects include the study of biological samples (blood plasma, tissues, etc.) for a metabolomics analysis of the changes during hibernation, the phosphorus content of soil extracts, and micelle formation in cyclodextrin derivatives with diffusion experiments.

The addition of an MRI to the MIF has expanded my collaboration to include changes in metabolic health and muscle mass in humans during clinical trials, as well as studying arctic ground squirrels during hibernation, and working with local veterinarians to help with their patient diagnostics.
