Dr. Stephen Strother
Dr. Strother studied Physics and Mathematics at Auckland University, New Zealand, and received a PhD in Electrical Engineering from McGill University, where he developed early Positron Emission Tomography (PET) techniques. After a fellowship at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, New York, he joined the VA Medical Center, Minneapolis as senior PET Physicist, and Assistant Professor of Radiology at the University of Minnesota where he became Professor of Radiology. In 2004 he moved to Toronto as a senior scientist at the Rotman Research Institute (RRI), Baycrest where he is Associate Site Leader in the Centre for Stroke Recovery (CSR), and Professor of Medical Biophysics at the University of Toronto. His research interests include neuroinformatics with a focus on optimization of PET and fMRI/MRI neuroimaging pipelines. He initiated and has led the neuroinformatics developments within CSR and RRI, Baycrest, and currently leads the group building the BrainCODE neuroinformatics data repository for the Ontario Brain Institute. He is also a cofounder of Predictek, Inc. and ADMdx in Chicago, and an Associate Editor for Human Brain Mapping.
