Dr. Reeder Awarded $50K IEDR Grant

Posted on May 11, 2009

Congratulations to Scott Reeder, MD, PhD who was recently awarded a $50,000 Innovation & Economic Development Research (IEDR) grant for his proposal entitled "Validation of Quantitative Biomarkers of Fatty Liver Disease using MRI". Using new fat-water imaging methods invented by Dr. Reeder in collaboration with scientists at GE, he proposed clinical imaging-biopsy correlation studies that will be used to validate new methods for quantification of abnormal accumulation of fat in the liver. Fatty liver disease is the leading cause of chronic liver disease in the USA affecting an estimated 100-300 million people and can lead to cirrhosis, liver failure and hepatocellular carcinoma. Diagnosis and treatment of fatty liver disease are currently limited by the lack of reliable and non-invasive biomarkers of disease features, such as intracellular fat.
