Umar Mahmood, MD, PhD

Vice Chair, Precision Imaging
Director, Center for Precision Imaging
Professor of Radiology, Harvard Medical School

Dr. Mahmood received his BS in Chemistry from the California Institute of Technology. He received his MD and PhD degrees from Cornell University. His doctoral and postdoctoral work in biophysics was performed at the Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center and focused on changes with radiotherapy in tumor energetics and membrane physiology using 31P NMR spectroscopy. His medical residency training was in Radiology at the Massachusetts General Hospital. Dr. Mahmood has focused on translational molecular imaging for the past 20 years across diverse diseases, including development of preclinical imaging methods for evaluation of molecular targets in cancer, cardiovascular disease, and autoimmune disease. He has placed an emphasis on clinically translatable techniques across PET, SPECT, MR, and optical methods to help address early response assessment and in situ lesion characterization needs.
