Dr. Wilks recently received his PhD in Biomathematics from the University of California, Los Angeles. His graduate work centered on increased quantification of medical imaging modalities. Specifically he worked on techniques for longitudinal prediction of dementia progression using [18F]-FDDNP. Additionally he developed methods for accurate kinetic modeling of large, slowly-diffusing radiotracers, applied to radio-labled antibodies for targeting tumor imaging.
