Biography & Affiliation


Charles Dumoulin, PhD, received his BS in chemistry from Florida State University in 1977 and his PhD degree in analytical chemistry in 1981. He then spent three years performing high-resolution NMR spectroscopy research at Syracuse University before moving to General Electric’s Research and Development Center in Niskayuna, NY, where he became part of the team that developed the first industrial prototype MR scanners.

Later, Dr. Dumoulin made major contributions to the fields of magnetic resonance angiography (MRA), dynamic MRI and interventional MRI (resulting in over 100 issued patents). In 2008 Dr. Dumoulin moved to Cincinnati and became the scientific director of the Imaging Research Center. His current research interests include MRI imaging of neonates, MR-guided focused ultrasound ablation, and interventional MR.
