ABOUT THE RESEARCHER

OVERVIEW

Research Group: Intelligent Medical Imaging Research Group

Dr. Gholipour develops technology, knowledge, and resources for in-vivo analysis of normal and abnormal brain growth before and early after birth when the brain undergoes its most rapid formative growth. These technologies, developed for computational developmental neuroscience and neurology, have enabled advanced studies into characterizing the structure and function of the early developing brain and the mechanism and patterns of altered brain development.

 

BACKGROUND

Ali Gholipour is an Assistant Professor in Radiology at Harvard Medical School, principal investigator and director of the Intelligent Medical Imaging research group at the Computational Radiology Laboratory, and the Director of Translational Research in the Radiology Department at Boston Children’s Hospital. He received all his degrees in Electrical Engineering (PhD’08 at the Univ. of Texas at Dallas, and MS’03, BS’01 at the Univ. of Tehran) and is currently a Senior Member of the IEEE. With long-term research interests in signal and image processing and intelligent systems, he has turned his focus to machine learning and medical imaging in the past decade. Dr. Gholipour is the recipient of awards from the Thrasher Research Fund, the Harvard Clinical and Translational Science Center, the McKnight Foundation, Fetal Health Foundation, and the Office of Faculty Development at Boston Children's Hospital (Eleanor and Miles Shore Fellowship); and is principal investigator on a number of projects funded by the National Institutes of Health.
