Noam Alperin came to the University of Miami in May 2009 from the University of Illinois at Chicago. He obtained his Graduate Degree from the University of Chicago’s Medical Physics program. Dr. Alperin’s research focuses on blood and CSF flow dynamics using flow sensitive MRI techniques. A primary aim of the research is to provide noninvasively, important physiologic parameters among which are cerebral blood perfusion and intracranial pressure. These parameters play impotent role in a wide range of neurological problems, including hydrocephalous and stroke. Since joining the University of Miami, Dr. Alperin’ Advance Image Processing laboratory is working closely with the Evelyn F. McKnight Center for Age Related Memory Loss, using different MRI modalities to characterize and quantify morphologic and physiologic changes in the brain associated with aging as well as the coupling between age related brain tissue volume loss and cerebral blood flow decrease.
