Dr. Ali’s research focuses on multimodality imaging using structural and physiologic MRI imaging with additional PET probes and molecular imaging techniques to better understand the complex nature of brain tumor microenvironment. The ultimate goal of his research is to use imaging and liquid biopsy biomarkers in prognostication, tumor response evaluation, and differentiation of tumor progression from treatment effect.

Ali joined D³b in 2020 and is also currently an Assistant Professor of Radiology at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania.  He is committed to facilitating collaboration and accelerating the implementation of advanced MRI and molecular imaging in pediatric brain tumors.
