Dr. Posse is a tenured Professor in the University of New Mexico’s Department of Neurology with more than 29 years of experience in biomedical MR research at institutions in the United States, Germany, Switzerland and Denmark. He is head of the MR research group in the Department of Neurology (http://hsc.unm.edu/som/neuro/lab/ ) and a member of the University of New Mexico Cancer Center. He holds affiliate faculty positions in the Department of Radiology at the University of Washington in Seattle, and in the Department of Clinical Medicine at the University of Copenhagen in Denmark. His research is focused on the development of novel diagnostic MRI methods for characterizing human brain function and physiology, and for presurgical mapping and monitoring of the treatment response in brain and breast cancer. The ultimate goal is to improve individualized treatment strategies and prognosis based upon patient specific functional brain mapping. He pioneered real-time functional MRI (fMRI) and high-speed MR spectroscopic imaging (MRSI) for applications in neurology, cancer research and psychiatry and holds 14 patents. He is a member of the editorial board of the journal Neuroimage and a member of the International Society of Magnetic Resonance in Medicine, the Organization for Human Brain Mapping, the Society for Neuroscience, and the Society of Biological Psychiatry.
