Dr. Sendhil Velan is the Head of Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy and Metabolic Imaging Group at the Singapore Bioimaging Consortium, Singapore. He also has additional appointments as an investigator in the Clinical Imaging Research Center and Singapore Institute of Clinical Sciences. His research includes both translational and Clinical imaging by Multi-modal imaging approaches including MRI and PET. He is also an adjunct faculty in the Department of Medicine at National University of Singapore.
Dr. Velan completed his PhD in Chemical Physics - Biophysics (interdisciplinary) with a research focus in Magnetic Resonance, and his postdoctoral fellowship in Magnetic Resonance methodologies at the NIH. He then worked as a staff scientist at the Biological Imaging Center in the Beckman Institute at the California Institute of Technology where he focused on high field magnetic resonance microscopy. He was also a faculty at the Department of Radiology in West Virginia University before moving to Singapore. He has developed several magnetic resonance techniques driven by spin physics for Imaging, self-diffusion measurements, high resolution MRS, and localized MRS for clinical applications. He is a member of the International Society for Magnetic Resonance in Medicine, and the National Magnetic Resonance Society of India, and is a reviewer for several journals and international funding agencies. He also mentors students from Physics, Chemistry, Engineering and Medicine.
