Koretsky Receives Gold Medal

Dr. Alan P. Koretsky, chief of NINDS's Laboratory of Functional and Molecular Imaging, recently received the Gold Medal award from the International Society of Magnetic Resonance in Medicine for his significant contributions to research in this field. Koretsky, who also serves as director of the NIH MRI Research Facility/Mouse Imaging Facility, was particularly recognized for his and his colleagues' pioneering work on transgenic mice, the use of Mn2+ as a paramagnetic tracer for brain studies, and perfusion measurements using arterial spin labeling. Koretsky has long been interested in bioenergetics and development of non-invasive imaging techniques to study physiological processes. His laboratory developed novel techniques to measure a variety of functions in the brain such as regional blood flow and neuronal tract tracing by MRI.
