Dr Julio Acosta-Cabronero
  • Senior Research Associate
  • Imaging Neuroscience
  • UCL Queen Square Institute of Neurology
  • Faculty of Brain Sciences

I graduated in Physics with Lasers and Photonics, MPhys(Hons) from the University of Hull in 2002. I then completed my PhD studies in Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) at the Herchel Smith Laboratory for Medicinal Chemistry at the University of Cambridge, and remained in Cambridge as a postdoc at the Department of Clinical Neurosciences until 2013. In 2010, I was awarded an Alzheimer's Research UK Fellowship to work on novel MRI biomarkers in neurodegenerative diseases, and was subsequently recruited by the German Centre for Neurodegenerative Diseases (DZNE) to extend this work. In December 2016, I joined the Wellcome Centre for Human Neuroimaging as a core-funded member of the Physics team.

Research Summary

My main focus at present is on the development of methods and applications for the MRI technique of Quantitative Susceptibility Mapping (QSM). See e.g. studies in aging (Acosta-Cabronero et al. J Neurosci 2016), Parkinson's disease (Acosta-Cabronero et al. Brain 2017), amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (Acosta-Cabronero et al. Radiology 2018), and a new approach for multi-scale QSM reconstruction (Acosta-Cabronero et al. Neuroimage 2018).

Teaching Summary

I have lectured on a wide range of topics from MRI physics to the latest neuroimaging discoveries in aging and neurodegenerative diseases. I currently teach on the "Physics for SPM Users" course at the Wellcome Centre for Human Neuroimaging.
