Researcher biography

Dr. Hussein Srour joined QBI/CAI in November 2014 as a Post Doctoral research fellow to work on the development of new functional brain imaging technologies for the study of learning and memory in the rodent, mainly Manganese Enhanced MRI or “MEMRI”. The results of this study will greatly contribute to pioneer MEMRI as the new generation of fMRI methodology applicable to the study of cognitive processes in mice.

In 2013, Dr. Srour joined Singapore Bioimaging Consortium (SBIC) as a Post Doctoral research fellow working on imaging and segmentation of activated Brown Adipose Tissue (BAT) using MEMRI in mice. He also worked on stroke patients in the evaluation of intracranial large artery stenosis by using ASL and DSC MRI in human. Before joining SBIC, he was a postdoctoral research fellow at Lorraine University Metz-France working on “BGaN superlattice-based thermal neutron detectors”.

He graduated from his PhD in 2012 on “Solar blind ultraviolet photodetectors based on new alloy BGaAlN” from Lorraine University, Metz-France and obtained his Master's degree in Semiconductor Materials and Nanotechnology in 2008 from Haute-Alsace University, Mulhouse-France.
