Nathan McDannold Ph.D.

Nathan received his B.S. in Physics from the University of Virginia, Charlottesville and his Ph.D. in Physics from Tufts University in Boston, MA in November 2001. He is currently an Assistant Professor in Radiology. He has been working in the Focused Ultrasound Laboratory at Brigham & Women's Hospital since June 1996. His work has been primarily concerned with the development and implementation of MRI-based thermometry methods, animal experiments testing MRI and ultrasound related work, and clinical focused ultrasound treatments of breast tumors, uterine fibroids, and brain tumors. In recent years, a main focus of his work has been studying the use of ultrasound for temporary disruption of the blood-brain barrier, which may allow for targeted drug delivery in the brain.
