Duygu Tosun, PhD

Professor of Radiology

Dr. Tosun is a Professor of Radiology at UCSF and Co-Director of the Center for Imaging of Neurodegenerative Diseases (CIND) at the San Francisco Veterans Affairs Medical Center. Dr. Tosun obtained her BSc in Electrical and Electronic Engineering from Bilkent University, Turkey in 1999, and she received her MSE in Electrical and Computer Engineering from The Johns Hopkins University, Maryland in 2001. In 2003, she completed her MA in Mathematics, and later a PhD in Electrical and Computer Engineering from The Johns Hopkins University in 2005, followed by a postdoctoral fellowship in Neurology from UCLA in 2008. 

Research Overview:

Developing algorithmic approaches for multi-modal data analysis
Dr. Tosun develops new algorithmic approaches for processing and analysis of multi-disciplinary/modal data including neuroimages, genetics, proteomics, as well as cognitive functioning measures in a unified framework. The primary aim is to identify multi-disciplinary/modality biomarkers for detecting the changes associated with disease specific neuropathology, improving understanding of pathophysiological progression and potentially providing a means of monitoring the efficacy and regional specificity of drug therapy for neurodegenerative diseases.
