Alexander Stolin, Ph.D.

   Alexander Stolin received initial training as a high-energy and nuclear experimental physicist and later got interested in nuclear medicine instrumentation development. Detector construction, software design and implementation, system integration are all parts of his research activities.

The sphere of interest:

   He's interested in developing new instrumentation and techniques in the field of nuclear imaging, as well as creating multi-modality imaging systems. Integration of positron emission tomography hardware with MR-based imagers is viewed as a very promising tool to be used in bio-medical research. Such a development project presents unique challenges, which makes the research all the more exciting.
