Research in Florence

Research is ongoing at the University of Florence.  Together with Francesco Guidi and Alessandro Ramalli, we are investigating the echoes of microbubbles using plane-wave ultrasound imaging.

Leonardo da Vinci

Last week, the Uffizi museum in Florence opened an exhibition of Leonardo’s “Adoration of the Magi” (or 3 Kings) following 6 years of restoration.  This unfinished work displays the creative genius of the great renaissance engineer.

New Theranostics Paper

Congrats to Kang-Ho Song on his new paper in Theranostics, “Microbubble gas volume: A unifying dose parameter in blood-brain barrier opening by focused ultrasound“.  Here, we show with microbubbles of different size that the extent of BBB opening increases linearly with the total volume dose of microbubbles.  We then use the technique to achieve targeted DNA transfection of neurons.  This work is a collaboration with Brandon Harvey at NIH.
