Dr Joshua Kaggie is a Senior Research Associate and MRI physicist funded in part by the NIHR Biomedical Research Council and in part by a European Union Horizon 2020 grant (StarSTEM). Originally from Utah, Dr Kaggie moved to Cambridge under a Fellowship from GlaxoSmithKline, where he supported preclinical and clinical developments. Dr Kaggie is currently assessing or developing methods at MRI centres in Cambridge as part of the MRIS unit in Addenbrooke’s Hospital, the WBIC, the Anne McLaren, and at the Veterinary School.
Dr Kaggie’s research revolves around X-nuclei imaging (sodium, carbon-13, etc), MR Fingerprinting, and Deep Learning. He works on developing novel imaging biomarkers for oncological and musculoskeletal imaging. Dr Kaggie is a joint-author of the book ”Fast Quantitative Magnetic Resonance Imaging” with Dr Buonincontri and Dr Graves, and, as a physicist, Dr Kaggie works with many clinicians in the Radiology Department, and beyond, for testing and developing these new MRI techniques. Dr Kaggie also works in implementing new MRI hardware, for non-proton MRI (such as carbon-13 and sodium imaging) or for other specialised applications. During the first half of 2020, Dr Kaggie has been a first/senior/co-author to over 10 peer-reviewed journal publications, with a few listed below.
Dr Kaggie is open to considering students who wish to obtain PhDs in the Radiology department under the topic of MRI Physics development.
