Ramsey D. Badawi
The Badawi Lab is focused on translational imaging, with emphasis on PET and other radiotracer techniques. Translational imaging is aimed at transferring (“translating”) research imaging methodologies to the clinic and human use. This requires a multidisciplinary approach and the Badawi lab has developed multiple collaborations with other investigators.
