Dr. Douglas Rowland has Over 14 years of experience in biomedical imaging and a further 6 years experience in instrumentation for physics experiments. His specific focus was on the production, chemistry and characterization of non-standard PET radionuclides in the first years of work in biomedical imaging. From there, he transitioned into developing techniques for imaging small animals on microPET and microCT technologies. Since 2007, he has been responsible for collaborating with principal investigators in the design and implement of imaging experiments on the full compliment of small animal in vivo imaging technologies at the Center for Molecular and Genomic Imaging (CMGI) including MRI and PET. In the most recent past, one of the main areas of focus has been to establish a strong MRI research program at the CMGI. He is also co-director of the Animal Imaging Shared Resource (AISR) of the UC Davis Cancer Center, which is a key leadership position in the Cancer Center. Dr. Rowland is one of the leaders of the in-vivo imaging efforts in this CounterACT Center of Excellence.
