Mario Dzemidzic, Ph.D.

Dr. Dzemidzic is an Assistant Research Professor in the Department of Neurology. A physicist by training, he is specialized in neuroimaging applications. His transition from the basic science of nuclear physics to the field of medical imaging was motivated by a desire to better understand the human brain, specifically disorders affecting its normal function. As a research scholar, Dr. Dzemidzic is focused on developing novel imaging methodologies for the acquisition, analysis, and interpretation of neuroimaging data that, along with his insight garnered by nearly two decades of research experience, are disseminated across a number of collaborative projects within Indiana University as well as those with other institutions. His research efforts span three major components. The primary component is the critical role he plays in the human alcohol research in the Department of Neurology (Neuropsychology Division). Secondly, he is heavily involved in externally (NIH) and internally funded collaborative research with Purdue University and IU Bloomington faculty. Lastly, he has a prominent scientific presence in a number of funded collaborative projects as well as external grant submissions with multiple departments on the IUPUI campus. He is associated with the Indiana Alcohol Research Center (IARC), Indiana Alzheimer Disease Center (IADC), Center for Neuroimaging (CfN), and Indiana University Network Science Institute (IUNI). He has also assisted PIs in the Center for Neuroimaging (Department of Radiology and Imaging Sciences), with set-up and testing of imaging protocols for numerous MRI and PET studies conducted over the past ten years. Dr. Dzemidzic has dedicated considerable effort to teaching and mentoring postdoctoral fellows, visiting scholars, and graduate students, including Medical Neurosciences students (lab rotations) and medical school students (research electives).
