Scientific research is complex and often not straightforward. Thus, one needs to be smart, well-organized and hardworking to be successful. So, work hard, learn new things each minute, try to become better each day, and you will be acknowledged.
When you love music, you go to a concert. When you love art, you go to a gallery. But when you love science you can’t just go to a laboratory — or can you? On June 7, six scientists from Massachusetts General Hospital opened their laboratory doors to a group of donors and their friends […]
Researchers at Massachusetts General Hospital have developed a new technique for imaging the brains of patients with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) that could vastly reduce the cost and time needed for new clinical trials—while also improving the accuracy of test results. Nazem Atassi, MD, the Associate Director of the Neurological Clinical Research Institute (NCRI) at […]
There’s so much more to artificial intelligence (AI) than what you’ve seen in sci-fi movies. In fact, advancements in machine learning could provide new opportunities for medical research and diagnosis. Keith J. Dreyer, DO, PhD, Vice Chairman of Radiology and Executive Director of the MGH & BWH Center for Clinical Data Science, says AI and machine learning has […]
Lawrence Wald, PhD, and his team at the Martinos Center for Biomedical Imaging at Massachusetts General Hospital are working to advance magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and related technologies, including magnetic particle imaging (MPI), a new method to detect small magnetic “nanoparticles” injected into the blood. Supported by an MGH Research Scholar Award, Dr. Wald and colleagues are now developing a […]
Shamanic rituals that involve entering a trance state have been a part of the human experience for thousands of years. But we still know very little about the scientific basis of trances. A team of investigators that included researchers from the Martinos Center for Biomedical Imaging at Mass General recently conducted MRI scans of 15 shamanic […]
