Graham Galloway's Research Group

  • Group leader
Prof Graham J. Galloway, BSc(Hons), PhD

Group leader, Centre for Advanced Imaging
Director of Operations, National Imaging Facility (NCRIS)
  • Group Research Students
    • Grain Al Shammari


 Research Interests

  • Prof. Galloway leads the Biomedical MRI group at the University of Queensland. He has supervised 14 PhD students in pulse sequence development, measurement of cardiac strain, studies of muscle metabolism, image analysis and processing in Alzheimers, water movement in concrete, functional MRI, development of 23Na MRI, musculature of the knee and training, changes in cartilage in osteoarthritis, musculature changes in whiplash, measurement of fat deposits as a function of disease, exercise or diet, development of novel rf coils, development of new gradient technology, applications of MR in toxicology and animal physiology.

  •  Defined by finding innovative solutions to novel problems, of breaking new ground, of pushing the envelope of research using MR, his publications include the first human liver and heart spectra, novel pulse sequences for volume selection and water suppression and the first 3D FSE echo experiments.

  •  His role in all projects is characterised by his multidisciplinary background, which ensures that he is able to draw together these apparently disparate threads. 

  • He led the development of the NCRIS Investment Plan for the Imaging component of Characterisation. This plan was accepted by DEST, with $7M Commonwealth funding, plus $10M state and institutional funding. Professor Galloway was nominated by the Imaging Community as the Inaugural Director of Operations of the National Imaging Facility.
