We are interested in the application of ultrasound for biomedical imaging, sensing, and therapy. Among others, we collaborate with researchers within the Departments of Radiology, Neurosurgery, Transplant Surgery, and Cardiovascular Imaging at the Brigham and Women’s Hospital; and the Departments of Orthopedic Surgery and Emergency Medicine at the Massachusetts General Hospital. Other collaborators include those at the Harvard Medical School, Harvard School of Dental Medicine, and the Boston University Department of Biomedical Engineering.

We have been instrumental in the development of high-intensity focused ultrasound for noninvasive brain surgery and are interested in the continued development of this technology for multiple indications (e.g., cancer, multiple sclerosis, and functional neurosurgery) and the translation of techniques toward novel diagnostic applications (e.g., surgical guidance, portable screening, and wearable monitors).
