Alastair Martin, PhD

MSBI Director of Graduate Studies
Adjunct Professor


Alastair J. Martin, PhD, is an Adjunct Professor and Co-Director of the Image-Guided Surgery Specialized Resource Group in the Department of Radiology and Biomedical Imaging at the University of California, San Francisco. Dr. Martin obtained his BSc in Physics from the University of British Columbia, Canada, in 1987, and he earned his MSc in Medical Biophysics from the University of Toronto, Canada in 1989. He completed his PhD in Medical Physics from the University of Toronto in 1994, followed by a postdoctoral fellowship in Medical Biophysics from the University of Western Ontario, Canada, in 1996.

Dr. Martin’s research is focused on applications where MR methods enhance the delivery of therapy. His research specifically targets neurosurgical and endovascular applications where MR techniques may provide significant benefits. These activities include basic science developments, animal studies, and clinical research. Dr. Martin primarily focuses his research on the development of MR guidance techniques for delivering deep brain stimulator electrodes to precise locations inside the brain. Another interest of Dr. Martin’s is the application of MR methods of endovascular procedures where he investigates safety concerns with endovascular devices within an MR system, and presently, he is contributing to the exploration of deflectable catheters.

Dr. Martin provides his services to many journals as a peer-reviewer. He has published over 100 journal articles, over 200 conference abstracts and 10 book chapters.
