       Overview
      Peder Larson, PhD, is an Assistant Professor in Residence and Principal Investigator of Larson Laboratory in the Department of Radiology and Biomedical Imaging at the University of California, San Francisco. Dr. Larson obtained his BS in Electrical Engineering and Mathematics from Stanford University, California in 2002, and he earned his MS in Electrical Engineering from Stanford University in 2003. Dr. Larson received his PhD in Electrical Engineering from Stanford University in 2007, followed by a postdoctoral fellowship in Radiology and Biomedical Imaging from UCSF in 2011.

      Dr. Larson primarily focuses on MR pulse sequence development, including MR physics, RF pulse design, acquisition strategies, and reconstruction techniques. He is working on developing new metabolic imaging methods in preclinical studies as well as considering the challenges for clinical translation. Dr. Larson’s research program also includes the development and applications of semi-solid tissue MR imaging techniques for positive contrast of tissues such as tendons, bone, and myelin that are invisible with conventional techniques.
