Biography

Dr. Bandettini has been pushing the field of fMRI methods for over 20 years, and along with directing his Section on Functional Imaging Methods and the Functional MRI Core Facility, he is Editor – In – Chief of the journal, NeuroImage. He is extremely active in the field, having published over 130 papers and having presented over 325 invited lectures. He has been an active member of the leadership of the Organization for Human Brain Mapping, having served as Education Chair, Program Chair, and President during the past decades.

Dr. Bandettini received his B.S. from Marquette University in 1989 and his Ph.D. from the Medical College of Wisconsin in 1994, where he played a role in the early development of magnetic resonance imaging of human brain function using blood oxygenation contrast. During his postdoctoral fellowship at the Massachusetts General Hospital with Bruce Rosen, he continued his investigation of methods to increase the interpretability, resolution, and applicability of functional MRI techniques. In 1999, he joined NIMH as an Investigator in the Laboratory of Brain and Cognition and as the Director of the NIH Functional MRI core facility. In 2001, he was awarded the Scientific Director's Merit Award for his efforts in establishing the NIH FMRI core facility. In 2002, he was awarded the Wiley Young Investigator's at the annual Organization for Human Brain Mapping Meeting. His laboratory is currently developing MRI methods to improve the spatial resolution, temporal resolution, sensitivity, interpretability, and applications of functional MRI.
