Dr. Samson Jarso
Dr. Samson Jarso is a research associate in the Neurology department. He received his PhD in Biophysics working at both the University of California at Berkeley and the University of California at San Francisco. His Postdoctoral fellowship, at Johns Hopkins, was focused on applying multimodal MR imaging methods to the characterization of tissue morphology and physiology to improve the clinical utility of MRI for surgical planning, and the monitoring of treatment efficacy for brain tumor patients. Currently his research efforts are directed toward building predictive models of stroke recovery. He is interested in investigating the predictive value of language function recovery, in the context of a longitudinal fMRI study of our clinical stroke population. These predictive models utilize data fusion methods, combining multimodal MR feature extraction, with clinical outcome measures as determined by multiple cognitive batteries.
