Maosen Wang uses preclinical imaging techniques (MRI, PET and CT) to assess disease progression and evaluate the therapeutic effect. He oversees the state-of-the-art small animal imaging center at Fralin Biomedical Research Institute. The center houses two small animal imaging machines: a Bruker 9.4T MRI with PET capabilities and a Bruker PET/CT. Dr. Wang brings experience in academia and industry in the design, implementation, and execution of imaging-based analysis across diverse animal studies. He supports research teams on protocol development, experimental design, data acquisition and image analysis.
