Dr. Louis Collins, a professor in the Department of Neurology and Neurosurgery and in the Department of Biomedical Engineering is pushing the boundaries of medical imaging, treating images to provide surgeons with visuals that they sometimes cannot even see with the patient’s body opened. Dr. Collins and his team’s research has had an impact on a range of treatments from cancer to Parkinson’s disease.
Dr. Christophe Grova is also a professor in the Department of Neurology and Neurosurgery and in the Department of Biomedical Engineering, whose research is focused on epilepsy. Dr. Grova and his team use a combination of imaging techniques to identify the area of the brain that is causing the epilepsy allowing the surgeon to isolate the area that needs to be removed in the case of surgical interaction to treat the disease.
