Wawrzyniec Lawrence Dobrucki is currently Assistant Professor in the Department of Bioengineering at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and holds faculty positions at Beckman Institute of Advanced Science and Technology and Carle-Illinois College of Medicine. He directs the Experimental Molecular Imaging Laboratory (EMIL).
His expertise is in molecular multimodality imaging, and his fields of professional interests include: (1) the development of novel targeted multimodal SPECT/PET/CT/optical imaging strategies to assess myocardial and peripheral angiogenesis in animal models of disease including diabetes, (2) standardization of small animal imaging protocols, and (3) the development and validation of novel targeted imaging probes and CT contrast agents.
Prof. Dobrucki received his Ph.D. in Chemistry from Ohio University, Athens, OH in 2003, and a joint M.Sc. degree in Bioengineering from Technical University of Wroclaw, Poland and Technical University of Hamburg, Germany. Before joining the Department of Bioengineering as tenure-track faculty in 2013, Prof. Dobrucki was a junior faculty member at Yale University School of Medicine and Senior Research Scientist at Beckman Institute where he directed the Molecular Imaging Laboratory (MIL) at the Biomedical Imaging Center (BIC).
