Eul hyun Suh, Eul Hyun Suh, Ph.D.
Eul Hyun Suh received her PhD degree in Biomedical Engineering from UT Southwestern Medical Center (UTSW) under Dr. Dean Sherry. Her PhD dissertation research projects focus on developing hyperpolarized 13C/15N MR probes to explore metabolic alternations associated with disease. She has received broad training in a variety of topics including basic engineering principles, imaging theory and practice, chemistry of molecular imaging probes, cancer metabolism and biochemistry of biosensing application. She also has gained experience with hyperpolarized metabolic imaging coupled with dissolution dynamic Nuclear polarization (DNP). She then continued her training in molecular imaging as a postdoctoral research associate at Advanced Imaging Research Center (AIRC) under Dr. Sherry. She is conducting research on enantiomeric detection of metabolite using Lanthanide shift reagent, and in vivo Zn2+ monitoring of beta-cell function in the pancreas using gadolinium-based contrast agents. Together with other colleagues, she recently reported monitoring beta-cell function in the pancreas in vivo by using a novel Zn2+ MRI sensor. Eul Hyun Suh has participated in an active outreach program to bring scientific thinking and concepts to middle and high school students. She lives in Dallas with her family and enjoys baking and playing music in her free time.
