Jan Valosek, PhD

I am a neuroscientist and biomedical engineer with multidisciplinary research and clinical background. My main interest is the spinal cord and brain quantitative magnetic resonance imaging.

I am now a postdoctoral fellow at Polytechnique Montréal in the NeuroPoly laboratory.

My PhD research focused on advanced diffusion MRI in patients with spinal cord compression and its relationship with electrophysiological findings; for details, see here.

Besides my research, I worked for 6.5 years as a biomedical engineer at the Department of Neurosurgery and the Department of Neurology, University Hospital Olomouc. I processed presurgical examinations (fMRI and tractography) of patients with brain tumours and provided technical support during brain and spine surgeries.
