Biography: Dr. Posse is a tenured Professor in the University of New Mexico’s Department of Neurology and Director of Human MR Imaging Research Laboratory. He has a secondary appointment in the Department of Physics and Astronomy, serves as a member of the UNM Cancer Center and holds an affiliate professorship at the University of Copenhagen in Denmark. He has more than 30 years of experience in biomedical magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) research at research centers in the United States, Germany, Switzerland and Denmark. Dr. Posse is known for his pioneering work in developing real-time functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) and high-speed magnetic resonance spectroscopic imaging (MRSI) for applications in Neuroscience and Clinical Research. His research interest is to develop novel diagnostic MRI methods for characterizing human brain function and physiology with the goal of improving individualized treatment strategies and prognosis based upon patient specific functional brain mapping. His current NIH funded research is focused on advancing presurgical mapping in patients with brain tumors and epilepsy. He serves on NIH study sections and collaborates with national and international research groups. His training of students, fellows, residents, junior faculty and staff prepares them for successful careers in academia and industry.
