Biography & Affiliation

Biography

Dr. Woods is one of the world’s experts on hyperpolarized-gas MRI and the use of such gas MRI to measure regional lung function, microstructure and physiology. He began his career in physics, radiology, and the dean's office at Washington University in St Louis, and moved to Cincinnati Children's in 2013 to apply new imaging techniques to pediatric translational research. He leads multiple team projects related to the multidisciplinary study of lung structure, function, biology and physiology. In particular, imaging applications to the study of cystic fibrosis, BPD, rare-lung diseases, and allograft rejection are all active areas of current research.

Dr. Woods directs the Center for Pulmonary Imaging Research at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center. The center is a multidisciplinary research and training program at the intersection of pulmonary medicine, radiology, and neonatology.
