Mark E. Lockhart, MD, MPH
Professor of Radiology
Chief, Abdominal Imaging Section
Univerwsity of Alabama at Birmingham
Dr. Lockhart did his undergraduate studies at the University of Mississippi in Oxford, Mississippi where he received a BA in Chemistry. His academic interests and research has primarily involved vascular ultrasound, MRI, and issues concerning public health. He is currently obtaining a Masters in Public Health in outcomes research.

Srinivasan Mukundan Jr., Ph.D., M.D.
Associate Professor of Radiology
Brigham and Women's Hospital
Section Chief, Neuroradiology
Srini attended Emory College where he received a B.S. degree in both Chemistry and Biology in 1986. He then went to graduate school at Emory University where he received a M.S. degree in Chemistry in 1990, and a Ph.D. degree in Chemistry in 1991. His dissertation was on the “The interaction of Pt-Anticancer drugs with DNA: Magnetic resonance spectroscopy and molecular simulated studies of Pt-Oligodeoxyribonucleatide adducts”. He then work as a post-doctoral fellow in cardiac MR at the Frederik Philips Magnetic Resonance Center under the mentorship of Roderic I. Pettigrew, Ph.D., M.D., the current Director of the National Institute of Biomedical Imaging and BioEngineering. In 1996, he completed his M.D. degree at the Emory University School of Medicine. Following a residency in Diagnostic Radiology at Emory, Srini completed a clinical fellowship in Neuroradiology, then joined the faculty as an Assistant Professor. In 2002 he was recruited to Duke University where he currently holds a triple appointment as an Assistant Professor of Radiology, Biomedical Engineering and Chemistry. In addition, he is a faculty member in the Medical Physics Program in the Department of Radiology.
In addition to being an Eagle Scout, Srini has received numerous prestigious awards over the years, including the Graduate Student Research Award, the Medical Student Research Award and the Radiology Resident Research Award, all while at Emory University. He also received the Berlex-Neuroradiology Education Research Foundation Scholar Award from the American Society of Neuroradiology and the Scholar Award from the American Roentgen Ray Society.
Srini has published 34 papers in peer-reviewed journals. Of recent note, he has collaborated with the Craniofacial surgeons at Duke on the imaging, three-dimensional modelling and repair of craniosynostoses. In addition, he has a very productive collaboration with a group of scientists at the University of Texas, developing nanoscale target-specific liposomes for molecular imaging.
At Technovation Consulting, Srini focuses primarily on applications relative to neuroscience although he has a broad range of expertise which includes nuclear magnetic resonance, magnetic resonance imaging, cardiac MR and molecular imaging.
