Dr Ramadan is a Senior Lecturer within the School of Health Sciences, Faculty of Health. He received his PhD from the School of Chemistry, The University of Sydney in 2000. He spent two years studying red blood cells by NMR techniques, followed by studying the effect of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs on rat stomach using NMR. He was then appointed as senior researcher at the Institute for Magnetic Resonance Research at Royal North Shore Hospital. In 2007, he moved to Boston, MA to take a position of Physicist at the Brigham and Women's Hospital, and became an Instructor in Radiology at Harvard Medical School. He was integrally involved in the development of MRI Research Policy at Brigham and Women’s Hospital.
Technical interests include MRI/MRS pulse sequence development for Siemens (Syngo) platforms, where he worked on many different platforms. Spectroscopic as well as MRI diffusion-weighted sequences were developed for Syngo platforms.
He also has experience in designing new RF shapes, designing spectroscopic editing sequences, as well as two-dimensional correlation spectroscopy.
His research activities involve programming and evaluating novel MR imaging and spectroscopic techniques for investigation of human disease, as well as analysis and data post processing. Current focus areas include: breast, brain and muscle MR imaging.
Dr. Ramadan commenced a full-time position at the University of Newcastle in 2011.
