Program in Image Guided Neurointerventions (PIGN)

The Program in Image Guided Neurointerventions (PIGN), a division of the Center for Advanced Imaging Research (CAIR), is located in the new HSF-III facility at the University of Maryland School of Medicine (UMSOM). It is co-directed by Piotr Walczak, MD, PhD and Miroslaw Janowski, MD, PhD, who along with fellow researchers use interdisciplinary approaches to work at the crossroads of therapeutic concepts and technical developments.

The mission of PIGN is to promote utilization of advanced imaging for a variety of neurointerventions in order to fully implement a paradigm of precision medicine that we believe is essential for improving outcomes of CNS disorders.

Progress in implementing effective therapies for CNS disease is frustratingly slow, and lags far behind treatments for other disorders. Resolving this disparity is PIGN's ultimate mission.
