Joel Garbow, PhD

Primary Academic Title

Professor of Radiology, Division of Radiological Sciences, Mallinckrodt Institute of Radiology, Washington University School of Medicine

Research Interest

The development and application of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and spectroscopy (MRS) techniques for studying cancer. MRI provides a noninvasive method for quantitatively monitoring the growth and ablation of tumors, serving as an extremely valuable tool in the development of new cancer therapies. I am also developing novel imaging and spectroscopic methods to provide insights into the structure, morphology and vasculature of tumors and their effect on surrounding healthy tissue.
