Profile Summary

Norbert Pelc is Professor of Radiology and Bioengineering, and Electrical Engineering (by courtesy) at Stanford. An expert in biomedical imaging, he received a doctorate in Medical Radiological Physics from Harvard in 1979. Dr. Pelc worked at GE Medical Systems (1978-1990) where he was involved in research in all the major imaging modalities and was instrumental in the development of CT, MRI, and digital radiography. He joined Stanford in 1990. In 2002, Dr. Pelc was named the Associate Chair for Research of the Radiology department. He served on a number of review panels and was a member of the NIBIB National Advisory Council. He is a Fellow of the International Society of Magnetic Resonance in Medicine, the American Association of Physicist in Medicine, the American Institute for Medical and Biological Engineering, and the American Heart Association. Dr. Pelc is an author of more than 165 peer-reviewed papers and more than 275 abstracts presented at scientific conferences, and he is the inventor of 81 issued US patents.
