Dr. Guilfoyle has worked in the NMR field for over 30 years in both industry and academia. For the past 17 years, he has worked to develop, refine and apply advanced high-speed methods for measurement of brain structure and function. He has particular interest in the study of neuropsychiatric disorders using a combination of human and rodent models. Recent work has placed particular emphasis on magnetic resonance spectroscopy, which examines brain chemistry, and the impact of chemogenetic approaches on brain chemistry.
