Molecular Imaging Lab - Chapelin Lab

Dr. Chapelin’s lab develops non-invasive magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) methods to track immune cell migration to foci of inflammation in different pathologies such as transplant rejection, autoimmune diseases and cancer. Specific areas of interest include:

  • Imaging of cell therapy distribution, fate, and efficacy in preclinical studies
  • Imaging of inflammation processes in tumors and transplants
  • Stem cell transplant engraftment and rejection imaging

Drs. Khurana and Chapelin Win Early-Career Research Award at SRU 2020

Dr. Aman Khurana, assistant professor of radiology and joint faculty member, and Dr. Fanny Chapelin, research assistant professor--both in the F. Joseph Halcomb III, M.D. Department of Biomedical Engineering--saw their original work on Ultrasound Liver Imaging Reporting And Data System (US LI-RADS) awarded third place for early-career research award at "Society of Radiologists in Ultrasound" (SRU) 2020. Their award-winning research was reviewed among several national and international submissions to the annual conference.

Drs. Khurana and Chapelin's work is titled “Interobserver agreement between primary scanning sonographers and secondary over-readers for surveillance liver ultrasounds using US LI-RADS." The first author of the award-winning paper (Dr. Khurana) will be expected to present the findings to the SRU Fellows in a special mentorship session on the first day of the meeting.
