Meet our Featured Researcher

 

Dr. Jonathan Thiessen

Jonathan Thiessen, PhD, is Scientific Director of the PET/MRI Program at the Lawson Health Research Institute and Assistant Professor in the Departments of Medical Biophysics and Medical Imaging at Western University. He is also a member of the Collaborative Graduate Program in Molecular Imaging and The Brain and Mind Institute. His research focuses on hybrid imaging with simultaneous positron emission tomography and magnetic resonance imaging (PET/MRI). Technology development by his lab includes work on novel PET/MRI systems, acquisition methods and analysis techniques. His group is also actively involved in PET/MRI research investigating prostate cancer, epilepsy, post-stroke cognitive impairment, Alzheimer’s disease, and cardiac disease. By helping to advance hybrid PET/MRI technologies, they hope to give new insight into the early biomarkers of disease and improve diagnosis and therapy in patients.
