Daniel B. Vigneron, PhD, wears a lot of hats: professor of radiology and biomedical imaging, professor of bioengineering and therapeutic sciences, director of the Advanced Imaging Technologies Specialized Resource Group, director of the Hyperpolarized MRI Technology Resource Center, associate director of the Surbeck Laboratory for Advanced Imaging. But all of these roles have something in common–they allow him to focus on developing hyperpolarized MRI techniques to detect, characterize and target brain and prostate tumors.
