Tarik F. Massoud holds M.A., M.D., and Ph.D. degrees. He serves as a Professor of neuroradiology and molecular imaging at Stanford where he is building and directing a new initiative in translational molecular imaging of the brain. He is graduated from the Medical School of the Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland (1984), subsequently trained in radiology and neuroradiology in Oxford, UCLA, and the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, MI, USA, and is a Fellow of the Royal College of Radiologists in London. He also holds a postgraduate research M.D. degree in experimental neuroimaging (work conducted at UCLA), and a Cambridge Ph.D. degree in molecular imaging (work conducted at the Crump Institute of Molecular Imaging at UCLA and the Molecular Imaging Program at Stanford, Gambhir Laboratory). From 2000 to 2013 he was a University Lecturer and Honorary Consultant in neuroradiology at the University of Cambridge School of Clinical Medicine and Addenbrooke’s Hospital in Cambridge, UK. He was formerly an Associate Professor of radiology at UCLA and held Visiting Associate Professorships at Columbia and Milwaukee. Tarik has published extensively and won numerous awards at scientific meetings. His papers in experimental interventional neuroradiology and molecular imaging are widely cited. He has been a peer reviewer for dozens of international medical journals, as well as other medical charities and governmental funding agencies. He is Editor’in ’Chief and an Editorial Board Member for several biomedical journals. His current interests are in molecular and translational imaging of the brain especially in neurooncology, experimental aspects of neuroimaging including the study of cerebrovascular malformations, clinical neuroradiology, neuroradiological anatomy, and research education and academic training of radiologists.
