Seth Friedman, PhD

  • Biography

    Seth Friedman Ph.D. is Manager of Innovation Imaging and Simulation Modeling and a PI in the Center for Respiratory Biology and Therapeutics.  His team's collaborative work focuses on finding new ways to quantify imaging biomarkers and better follow disease progression and therapeutic intervention. Current studies are investigating congenital airway narrowing, characterizing abnormal tissue features in tracheomalacia, 3D printing for surgical planning, developing software for epilepsy surgical planning, and understanding the overlap between MRI and molecular features (e.g. RNA) in muscular dystrophy.
