Professor Scott Reeder, MD, PhD, was awarded the H.I. Romnes Faculty Fellowship. A major campus honor, the award comes with a large flexible research fund provided by the University of Wisconsin-Madison Office of the Vice Chancellor for Research and Graduate Education with funding from the Wisconsin Alumni Research Foundation.
Dr. Reeder serves as the Director of the UW Liver Imaging Research Program, a group that develops and translates technical innovation for improved imaging of the liver and abdomen. The group’s work with quantitative imaging has resulted in the development of MRI methods for measuring liver adiposity, liver fat, liver iron overload, and other features of the liver. More recent projects include advance methods for diffusion weighted imaging and imaging near metallic implants.
The fellowship is named in honor of Haakon Ingolf Romnes, late Trustee and President of the WARF board.
