Research Information

Dr. Kozlowski’s main research interest is in the development and application of Magnetic Resonance Imaging and Spectroscopy (MRI/MRS) technology to study pre-clinical models of human diseases, and the development of novel MRI-based diagnostic techniques for prostate cancer. The pre-clinical research is mostly related to spinal cord injury models and MRI techniques to characterize the biophysical basis of these models.
