Hyperpolarized Xenon Magnetic Resonance Imaging


Greg Blasche came into this world in the year 1977 at a hospital near Ohio University. He spent a few years in Texas before deciding at the young age of two that he belonged in the wonderful state of Massachusetts. He received his B.A. in Physics (with a minor in Mathematics) from Boston University in 1999, and deciding that he liked the Goldberg/Ünlü group, he stayed there for his doctoral studies. In 2001 He received his M.A. in Physics and in 2004 and after 2519 cups of Peets coffee, 1294 cups of tea, and 1439 souvlakis, he received his Ph.D. in Physics.

He worked at the Army Research Lab in Adelphi, MD during the fall semester of 2003. He was awarded the College of Arts and Sciences Dean's Award at Graduate Science Day 2002.
