Known Innovators in the Field of Imaging

Robert J. Gropler, MD, serves as director of the PET-RTRC. He co-leads one of the center’s prominent research projects, which aims to translate an imaging agent for head and neck cancer patients. Gropler also is senior vice chair and division director of radiological sciences at Mallinckrodt Institute of Radiology.
