Now, with the availability of advanced digital tools and technologies, the biomedical visualization field is allowing talented young artists with an interest in medicine and an understanding of cellular and molecular biology in addition to anatomy to develop new visual communication tools to help scientists graphically share their discoveries.

The Focused Ultrasound Foundation is dedicated to advancing the field of focused ultrasound. One facet of this goal is to match researchers, scientists, and clinicians with institutions seeking candidates for open employment opportunities. Below are two open positions in the field. 

A newly published preclinical study – "Clinically Approved IVIg Delivered to the Hippocampus with Focused Ultrasound Promotes Neurogenesis in a Model of Alzheimer’s Disease"– led by Dr. Isabelle Aubert and her team at Sunnybrook Research Institute has demonstrated that using focused ultrasound plus microbubbles to increase the permeability of the blood-brain barrier (BBB) significantly improved the delivery of intravenous immunoglobulin (IVIg) to the brain, which reduced the plaques associated with Alzheimer’s disease and created measurable neuronal regeneration in the delivery brain area heavily involved in learning and memory.
