Researchers at Virginia Tech (VT) and the Virginia-Maryland College of Veterinary Medicine recently announced the grand opening of their state-of-the-art Animal Cancer Care and Research Center in Roanoke, which will perform focused ultrasound studies and treatments among a large array of other modalities and services.

After reading his list of current projects, it is easy to see why Eli Vlaisavljevich, PhD, an Assistant Professor in the Department of Engineering and Mechanics at the Virginia Tech - Wake Forest School of Biomedical Engineering and Sciences, jokes that his Therapeutic Ultrasound and Non-Invasive Therapies Laboratory should perhaps be called “the unfocused focused ultrasound lab.” With a groundbreaking clinical trial named in memory of his mother and work ranging from cancer to conservation, Dr. Vlaisavljevich shows no signs of slowing down or focusing on only one idea anytime soon. Our interesting Q&A session with him follows.

Back in August, the Focused Ultrasound Foundation team became aware of a severe outbreak of COVID-19 within the Cedars Healthcare Center, which is a long-term care facility located directly adjacent to Foundation offices.

The 106th Scientific Assembly and Annual Meeting of the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) was a highly scaled-back virtual meeting that took place November 29 through December 5, 2020.
