Dr. Rahmim is Associate Professor of Radiology and Physics at the University of British Columbia (UBC) as well as Senior Scientist and Provincial Medical Imaging Physicist at BC Cancer. He received his MSc in condensed matter physics and PhD in medical imaging physics at UBC. Following doctoral studies, he was recruited by Johns Hopkins University (JHU) to lead the high resolution brain PET imaging physics program and to pursue research at the JHU Department of Radiology. In 2018, he was recruited back to Vancouver, where he conducts research in tomographic image generation and analysis, including oncologic and brain applications. He has published a book and over 140 journal articles and 280 conference proceeding papers/abstracts, and has delivered more than 100 invited lectures worldwide. He has participated as principal investigator or co-investigator on a range of grants towards quantitative tomographic imaging, including translation to clinical applications. Dr. Rahmim was awarded the John S. Laughlin Young Scientist Award by the American Association of Physicists in Medicine (AAPM) in 2016, was Vice President (2017-18) and President (2018-19) of the Physics, Instrumentation and Data Sciences Council (PIDSC) of the Society of Nuclear Medicine & Molecular Imaging (SNMMI), and is Chair of the SNMMI Artificial Intelligence (AI) Task Force (2020-).
