Research Interests

Cerebral ischemia, human brain development, PET, MR

Dr. Lin’s research interests are two-fold:

  • Using PET and MR imaging to research cerebral ischemia, both pre-clinically and clinically. Dr. Lin hopes his research in this field will refine how imaging can be used to guide therapy.
  • Using MR as a means to non-invasively learn about structural and functional brain maturation.
