Erik M. Shapiro, Ph.D., assistant professor of diagnostic radiology and biomedical engineering, has received a $1.5 million Director’s New Innovator Award from the National Institutes of Health. Shapiro, who arrived at Yale in 2006 and directs the Molecular and Cellular Magnetic Resonance Imaging Laboratory in the Department of Diagnostic Radiology, is developing new ways to enhance cellular and molecular magnetic resonance imaging technology. These technical advances will allow scientists to detect, measure and manipulate cell migration in living tissue.
