Dr. Lisa Krishnamurthy is a Magnetic Resonance (MR) Physicist with considerable experience in designing and optimizing MRI acquisition and experiments. Her work in this area was recognized internationally by the International Society for Magnetic Resonance in Medicine (ISMRM) by being selected as a semi-finalist in the ISMRM Young Investigator Award competition for her development of T2-Relaxation Under Phase Contrast (TRU-PC) MRI. The goal of her research is to develop clinically-relevant novel MR acquisition schemes to mechanistically understand the human brain, and how it changes in the presence of pathology, cognitive disability, and aging. Dr. Krishnamurthy is currently PI on a VA RR&D CDA1, and co-I on two VA RR&D Merits.
