Research Currently in Progress

Professor Magin joined the Department of Bioengineering at the University of Illinois at Chicago as Department Head in 1999 and served in that position until 2011. He is the author of more than 150 peer-reviewed technical papers and the book, Fractional Calculus in Bioengineering (Redding, CT, Begell House, 2006). His current research interests focus on the application of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in science and engineering. These applications involve using MRI to measure the anisotropic diffusion of water in brain tissue, the multi-component relaxation of water protons in engineered tissues and the complex shear modulus of brain tissue in humans and animals as they grow and age. This work has been supported by grants from the National Institutes of Health and by the National Science Foundation.
