I am a neurologist with a career-long research focus on functional and structural brain imaging. I have worked extensively with positron-emission tomography (PET), with functional and structural magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI and sMRI), and with magnetic spectroscopy (MRS) throughout my career. For the past 23 years (1991-present) I have served as Director of the Research Imaging Institute (RII), a department-level, research-dedicated component of the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio. In this capacity, I have overseen the steady transformation of the RII from a facility focused on human neuroimaging research to a truly translational facility supporting multi-modal (PET, MRI, MRS) imaging in rodents (mice, rats) and multiple non-human primate species (NHP; marmosets, capuchins, rhesus, baboons and chimpanzees) as well as humans. This expansion of capacity ? creating a Comprehensive Facility for Animal Imaging Research (CFAIR) -- was funded by > $10 million in facility-development grants from the Texas Emerging Technology Fund (ETF), the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), the NIH Shared Instrumentation Grant (S10) and Institutional Animal Resource (G20) programs. While the majority of my research experience is in humans, I have numerous publications using NHP models and have been funded as on NHP grants both as PI and as co-I. The NIH/NIBIB, NIH/NIMH, NIH/NINDS, NIH/NIDCD, NIH/NLM, NIH/NHLBI, The National Science Foundation, The Office of Naval Research, The Veterans Administration, the CDMRP, The Army MRMC, DARPA, The Dana Foundation, The McDonnel-Pugh Foundation, The San Antonio Area Foundation, and The Kronkosky Foundation have funded my imaging research.
