Recruitment of Established Investigators
November 19, 2014
Ultrasound is not just your father’s diagnostic tool any more. More and more sophisticated ultrasound tools are being developed not only for diagnosing cancers, but also for treating them.
Dr. Robert Mattrey, M.D., could have retired from the University of California, San Diego, but the promise of being able to invent new uses for ultrasound lured him to The University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center. He came in 2015 as a professor of radiology and the Advanced Imaging Center, with the help of a Recruitment of Established Investigators Award from CPRIT. His role is to organize and lead the Translational Research in Ultrasound Theranostics (TRUST) program.
