John D. Port, M.D., Ph.D.
Traditional neuroimaging has failed to be useful for the diagnosis and prognosis of psychiatric disease; psychiatric disorders are diagnosed based purely on clinical history. The research goal of John D. Port, M.D., Ph.D., is to develop new tools for diagnosing psychiatric disorders that could help psychiatrists objectively diagnose such diseases.
Significance to patient care
Dr. Port creates new MR-based imaging and spectroscopy tools that allow for the study of common diseases such as bipolar disorder, major depression, alcoholism and diabetes. Dr. Port's tools will be critical to advancing the knowledge in these fields, with the end goal of improving patient care.
