Dr. Lloyd Lumata, assistant professor of physics
Previously: Postdoctoral fellow, Advanced Imaging Research Center, UT Southwestern Medical Center
Research interests: Biomedical physics, biomedical nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy and imaging, hyperpolarized magnetic resonance
Quote: “My research is in biomedical physics, developing new technology and instrumentation that will make MRI images clearer and from which we can get more diagnostic information. Using these new techniques, we can gain information about metabolic states of diseases like cancer or diabetes, for example. I am very excited to do this research at UT Dallas because the University is growing rapidly, and there is a great deal of energy here. In addition, the proximity of the campus to UT Southwestern offers opportunities for collaborations that will benefit both institutions.”
