Welcome Amjad

Please join us in welcoming our new post-doc, Dr. Amjad Samara.  Amjad will be working closely with Dr. Sarah Eisenstein studying neuroinflammation in obesity using DTI-based Diffusion Basis Spectrum Imaging (DBSI)  and PET with [11C]PBR28. He will also be working on a project in which PET[11C]LY2795050 is used to quantify central kappa opioid receptors in individuals with persistent pain. Amjad’s goals include experiencing and mastering a variety of neuroimaging skills.
