Brett received a BSc in both physics and chemistry (2003). His initial research focus was in time resolved fluorescence imaging and ultrasound to characterize bio-engineered cartilage. Later, he extended his research to MRI, using high field MRI to detect early metastatic brain lesions. He obtained his PhD in biophysics (2013) after showing that small molecule gadolinium chelates can be delivered to tumors for several hours following MRgFUS ablation and continued work in Professor Katherine Ferrara’s laboratory as a postdoctoral scholar combining immunotherapy with ablation. He is currently an Instructor in Radiology working to improve treatment of solid tumors through MR imaging, focal ablation, and immunotherapy. He joined the Radiology diversity committee in 2019 and is interested in promoting the recruitment and retention of diverse trainees.
