Biography

The aim of my work is to develop in-vivo imaging markers of brain function. My group uses Positron Emission Tomography (PET) and Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) to model brain physiology in health and disease. Presently we are focused on brain immunity and its’ relationship with the peripheral immune system, brain myelination and glymphatic function. We are also interested in constructing precise models of drug pharmaco-kinetic action and pharmacodynamics.

Federico Turkheimer is Theme Co-Lead for Neuroimaging at the NIHR Maudsley Biomedical Research Centre.
