Abstract:

In the second year, this program has supported two graduate students one from the Electrical Engineering Department and one from the Biochemistry Department and three postdoctoral fellows Radiology Department. This program supports the graduate students in the second year. The new postdoctoral fellows have been introduced to the Biomedical NMR Laboratory and the Howard University Cancer Center. The trainees have continued to learn the theory and instrumentation of nuclear magnetic resonance imaging and spectroscopy. The trainees have rotated through the mammography service in the Department of Radiology in the hospital to learn the mammography procedures. Besides attending the weekly seminars in the Cancer Center, the trainees also have attended a special seminar series on the breast imaging sponsored by this grant and the Department of Electrical Engineering. The trainees have actively participated in several research projects. Based on the experimental findings, one paper was published and three posters have been presented in the national scientific meetings. Two graduate student trainees have passed their comprehensive exams and have started research for their Ph.D. thesis. One postdoctoral trainee has completed his radiology resident training. The PI has submitted a NIH grant as a co-investigator.
