Dr. Rob Bartha is a Scientist, Robarts Research Institute and Assistant Professor, Department of Diagnostic Radiology and Nuclear Medicine, Western University. He completed his PhD in medical biophysics at Western University. His research is focused on the development of high-field magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and spectroscopy techniques for early diagnosis of disease and monitoring of treatment response. A major goal is to validate new imaging biomarkers of disease progression and build novel MRI tracers that highlight pathological aspects of a disease process.
