Myriam Chaumeil, PhD, recipient of
2013 Bruce Hasegawa Award
October 29, 2013
At the Department of Radiology and Biomedical Imaging’s 10th annual Research Symposium on October 29, 2013, Myriam Chaumeil, PhD was presented with the 2013 Bruce Hasegawa Award.
Dr. Chaumeil is a postdoctoral scholar working in the laboratory of Sabrina Ronen, PhD, where she applies innovative magnetic resonance techniques, such as hyperpolarized carbon-13 and contrast-enhanced imaging, to characterize brain tumors and their response to treatments. She earned her PhD in Medical Physics from the University of Paris XI, France.
In accepting the award, Chaumeil remarked: “I feel really lucky to have had the chance to work in this department with an amazing group of people, and to follow Professor Hasegawa’s footsteps in developing new imaging techniques, such as hyperpolarized 13-C MR spectroscopy. I would like to thank all my colleagues from the Surbeck lab and QB3 for their help and friendship. I would like to also give special thanks to my mentor and PI Sabrina Ronen for her continuous support over the last five years. And finally, I would like to thank the Symposium Committee as well as Bruce Hasegawa’s friends and family for this generous award. I feel really honored.”
The Bruce Hasegawa Award recognizes a radiology and biomedical imaging graduate student or postdoctoral scholar annually. It is generously funded by Hasegawa’s childhood friend, Dr. Gordon Honda.
