Gary Glover
Stanford University, USA

Gary Glover received his PhD in Electrical Engineering from the University of Minnesota in 1969. He joined GE’s Corporate Research & Development (CR&D) Labs in Schenectady, New York and studied solid state devices, computed ultrasound tomography and X-ray computed tomography until 1976, when he moved to GE’s Medical Systems in Milwaukee to help transition fan-beam CT technology from CR&D. In 1980, he began the development of MRI as one of a team of five, and was thus instrumental in defining both the CT and MR products for GE. He joined Stanford’s Radiology Department as Professor in 1990 and founded the Radiological Sciences Laboratory. His current field of research is in MRI physics in general, and specifically in the development and application of functional MRI (fMRI) methods. His students’ recent contributions include optimized techniques for acquisition and analysis of fMRI data, characterization of the dynamics of brain networks, development of real-time fMRI biofeedback methods, and multimodal neuroimaging using fMRI combined with EEG, fNIRS, fPET and functional MR Elastography, as well as with neuromodulatory TDCS, TACS and TMS.
