Dr. Juchem’s research focuses on the improvement of technology and data analysis methods to enhance the clinical potential of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and spectroscopy (MRS). The goal of his laboratory is to provide crucial tools to obtain information early in the development of multiple sclerosis and other neurological conditions with dedicated MRI/MRS techniques. Among others, he developed novel algorithms and software for optimal processing and quantification of in vivo MRS data. Dr. Juchem recently joined Columbia from Yale University where he successfully pursued clinical MRI/MRS research and served as Co-Director of the 7 Tesla Brain MR Spectroscopy Core. He has more than 15 years of experience in conducting and analyzing magnetic resonance experiments in animal models and humans.
Dr. Juchem is a Clinical and Translational Science Award (CTSA) scholar and has been a finalist of the I.I. Rabi Young Investigator Award of the International Society for Magnetic Resonance in Medicine (ISMRM). He served as Chair of the ISMRM’s MR Engineering Study Group, journal reviewer for more than a dozen peer-reviewed scientific journals (including Magnetic Resonance in Medicine Distinguished Reviewer in 2014/2016) and grant reviewer for 4 national research societies.
