Marvin M. Doyley, PhD, Principal Investigator

Research Overview

The mission of the Parametric Imaging Research Laboratory (PIRL) is to develop novel imaging methods for detecting disease more quickly and for determining how well patients are responding to therapy. Current research includes:

  • Monitoring the response of pancreatic cancer to chemotherapy, radiation therapy, and targeted therapy.
  • Determining how inflammation and cART affect the vascular integrity of individuals infected with HIV.
  • Developing contrast-enhanced ultrasound imaging methods for visualizing vasculature at a high spatial resolution.

We are located on the 7th floor of the Computer Studies Building at the University of Rochester. If you are interested in collaborating with us or in joining the MIRG team, please contact Marvin Doyley at
