Editor-in-Chief: Dr Tarik F. Massoud

Tarik Massoud is Professor of Neuroradiology and Molecular Imaging, Department of Radiology, at Stanford University School of Medicine and Medical Centre, USA, where he is building and directing a new initiative in translational molecular imaging of brain cancer.

Tarik qualified from the Medical School of the Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland (1984), subsequently trained in Radiology and Neuroradiology in Oxford, UCLA, and the University of Michigan, and is a Fellow of the Royal College of Radiologists in London. He also holds a postgraduate research MD degree in experimental neuroimaging (work conducted at UCLA), and a Cambridge PhD in molecular imaging (work conducted at the Crump Institute of Molecular Imaging at UCLA, and the Molecular Imaging Program at Stanford, Gambhir laboratory).

From 2000 to early 2013 he was a University Lecturer and Honorary Consultant in Neuroradiology at the University of Cambridge School of Clinical Medicine and Addenbrooke’s Hospital in Cambridge, UK. He was formerly an Associate Professor of Radiology at UCLA, and held visiting Associate Professorships at Columbia and Milwaukee.

Tarik has published extensively and won numerous awards at scientific meetings. His papers in experimental interventional neuroradiology and molecular imaging are widely cited. He has been a peer-reviewer for numerous international medical journals, as well as other medical charities and governmental funding agencies. He is Editor-in-Chief of the journal Reports in Medical Imaging, and an editorial board member for several other biomedical journals.

His current interests are in molecular and translational imaging of the brain especially in neuro-oncology and cerebrovascular diseases, experimental aspects of neuroimaging, clinical neuroradiology, neuroradiological anatomy, and research education and academic training of radiologists.
