Dr. Latour received his Ph.D. in Biomedical Engineering at Worcester Polytechnic Institute. After receiving the US DOE Alexander Hollander Distinguished Post-doctoral Fellowship at Brookhaven National Laboratory, he became Director of Applied Science at Medical Advances with an appointment in Medical Physics at the Medical College of Wisconsin. Dr. Latour was recruited to NINDS- DIR as a Staff Scientist in 2000 to help build the Section on Stroke Diagnostics and Therapeutics. The Section conducts clinical research at the Stroke Centers of Suburban Hospital in Bethesda, Maryland and Washington Hospital Center in the District of Columbia, where the NINDS has placed stroke teams and MRI research facilities. Over the past three years, Dr. Latour has assembled a team to study civilians with acute head injury as part of the DOD funded CNRM and is currently the PI for the Acute Studies Core. His research interests focus on the use of MRI to better identify, classify, and treat acute stroke and brain injury.
