Prof. Dr. Marius George Linguraru

Marius George Linguraru, DPhil, is Associate Professor and Principal Investigator in the Bioengineering Initiative of the Sheikh Zayed Institute for Pediatric Surgical Innovation at Children's National Medical Center in Washington DC, USA. Within the Bioengineering Initiative, Dr. Linguraru leads the medical image analysis efforts for quantitative imaging, computer-aided diagnosis, image-based interventions and multi-organ modeling of anatomy and physiology in children. These efforts will enhance traditional medical imaging modalities and create modern clinical tools for radiology, oncology and minimally invasive interventions. Dr. Linguraru is internationally known for his work in radiology and medical image processing, particularly in harnessing software based technology to enhance the clinical use of existing imaging tools for complex disease management. His interdisciplinary work involves collaborations between scientists, engineers and clinicians from government, academia and industry. He published over 100 scientific and clinical papers and numerous conference abstracts in the field, and has been invited to present keynote talks and lectures in international conferences, workshops, and institutes on three continents.

Dr. Linguraru maintains an appointment as a guest researcher at the National Institutes of Health Clinical Center,  where he worked in the past in the Department of Radiology and Imaging Sciences. He completed his doctorate at the University of Oxford and holds two masters degrees from the University of Sibiu, Romania. He held postdoctoral fellowships at Harvard University and the French National Institute of Research in Informatics and Mathematics. Dr. Linguraru is currently a Member Elect of the Technical Committee for Medical Imaging and Image Processing of the IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society. He is the recipient of a prize for Excellence in Engineering by a Younger Engineer of Britain at the Houses of Parliament in London, UK.
