Prof. Dr. Daniel Razansky

Academic Career and Research Areas

Professor Razansky’s (b. 1974) research lies at the forefront of the rapidly evolving area of molecular imaging sciences. As opposed to traditional anatomical imaging approaches, this multidisciplinary field aims at early diagnosis and improved classification of tissue function and stage of disease with highly potent applications in areas such as neuroscience, cancer research, and cardiovascular diagnostics. The particular focus is on the development of novel biomedical imaging tools based on optoacoustics, diffuse optics, ultrasound, and multi-modality approaches in order to enable imaging with high spatial and temporal resolution on different scales, from organ to cell.
Professor Razansky earned his MSc in electrical engineering and PhD in biomedical engineering from the Technion – Israel Institute of Technology – and completed a postdoctoral training at Harvard Medical School.
