Short Biography

Matthew Grech-Sollars is an Imperial College Research Fellow working in the field of Neuro-Oncology Neuroimaging. As a Clinical Scientist, he specialised in MRI and has worked with various imaging modalities including diffusion, perfusion (DSC and DCE) and MR spectroscopy. His key interest is in developing novel MR and PET imaging techniques to improve clinical outcomes for patients with brain tumours, and a vision of having these methods integrated into clinical practice.
