Daniel B. Vigneron, PhD, is a Professor in the Department of Radiology and Biomedical Imaging and a Professor in the Department of Bioengineering and Therapeutic Sciences at the University of California, San Francisco. He is also Director of the Advanced Imaging Technologies Resource Group, Director of the Hyperpolarized MRI Technology Resource Center, and Associate Director of the Surbeck Laboratory for Advanced Imaging at UCSF. Dr. Vigneron’s professional activities focus on the advancement of biomedical MRI research. Dr. Vigneron obtained his BA in Chemistry from Wesleyan University in Middletown, Connecticut in 1983, and he received his PhD in Pharmaceutical Chemistry from UCSF in 1988 for his graduate work on applying new MRI techniques for characterizing disease and therapy response. In 1990, he completed a postdoctoral fellowship from the Fox Chase Cancer Center in Philadelphia and in 1991 he completed a postdoctoral scholarship from UCSF.
Dr. Vigneron’s research is focused on the development of metabolic magnetic resonance imaging techniques for research and clinical assessments of human diseases. His initial focus was on developing 3D MR spectroscopic imaging for the non-invasive assessment of brain tumor metabolism. Another major research interest of Dr. Vigneron’s is the characterization of prostate cancer using novel MR metabolic imaging techniques. Developing specialized acquisitions techniques for prostate cancer MRSI has been a major project for Dr. Vigneron and his group.
Dr. Vigneron leads the technical development aspects of hyperpolarized carbon-13 MR program at UCSF and is the Principal Investigator of three projects focused on new metabolic MRI techniques. He has published over 200 articles, over 10 book chapters and over 450 abstracts related to his research.
