Career Summary

Biography

Dr Stanwell is a Medical Imaging Scientist and Associate Professor in Medical Radiation Sciences. He completed his undergraduate study in Medical Radiation Sciences at the University of Newcastle before pursuing post-graduate studies in Magnetic Resonance Imaging at the Johns Hopkins Medical Institutions, Baltimore, USA. His move into academia began following his time at Johns Hopkins University and led to him gaining his PhD through the Faculty of Medicine, University of Sydney, in December 2007. Upon completion of his PhD, Dr Stanwell worked as a clinical physicist (Department of Radiology) at the Brigham and Women’s Hospital, Boston, USA, for 3.5 years. During the same period he held the academic appointment of “Instructor in Radiology” at the Harvard Medical School. He relocated to Newcastle, and commenced a full-time position at the University of Newcastle in 2011.

Dr Stanwell’s research focuses on exploring novel MRI-based techniques that enhance the detection of clinical indicators of disease, whilst minimising risk to the patient. He has attracted over $800,000 in research funding since joining the University of Newcastle. His grants support investigations into sport-related concussion, ischemic stroke (diagnosis and rehabilitation), delivery of radiotherapy during cancer treatment, human pain conditions and investigation of human brain function using functional MRI techniques. He currently supervises 7 PhD students (5 at University of Newcastle and 1 each at Australian National University and University of NSW) in the areas of sport-related concussion, nutrition and dietetics, stroke rehabilitation, adaptive radiotherapy treatment, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and mechanical engineering. 

Dr Stanwell has extensive experience in magnetic resonance spectroscopy, diffusion-weighted MR imaging, diffusion tensor imaging, perfusion-weighted MR imaging, and dynamic contrast-enhanced MRI. His contributions include developing neuroimaging techniques to study brain function, and contrast-enhanced MRI studies to monitor cancer therapies. He has numerous clinical collaborations most notably in ischemic stroke imaging, mild traumatic brain injury (mTBI), and radiation oncology. He has been actively involved in developing radiologic techniques to study chronic human pain conditions, as well as MR imaging techniques to study breast, ovarian and prostate cancers. More recently, he has been involved in developing MRI-based techniques to study sport-related concussion and functional MRI applied to food addiction, as well as developing techniques to assess delivery of chemoradiation in human cancers. In line with Government priorities, his research findings have translated into improved diagnosis and management of important disease states including ischemic stroke, cancer, and obesity.

Dr Stanwell has been invited to deliver talks at major international imaging meetings including the International Society for Magnetic Resonance in Medicine, clinical workshops conducted by Harvard Medical School, and he has been an invited speaker for the Australasian College of Physical Scientists & Engineers in Medicine. He has published over 43 original papers that have received over 350 citations with an average of 9.7 citations per paper and his current h-index is 13 (Source: Web of Science). His work has been accepted for publication by the leading radiological journals including NeuroImage, Radiology, Investigative Radiology, American Journal of Roentgenology, European Radiology, European Journal of Radiology, RadioGraphics and Journal of Neuroimaging. As well he has published in specialist journals including Chemical Reviews, Stroke, Journal of Neurotrauma, Sports Medicine, British Journal of Sports Medicine and Nutrition Reviews.

Dr Stanwell’s work role consists of a balance of research, teaching and administration. He is the Convenor of the Imaging Section for Translational Neuroscience and Mental Health Priority Research Centre (University of Newcastle), sits on the Advisory Physics Panel of the Trans-Tasman Radiation Oncology Group (TROG), is a member of the HMRI Imaging Centre Scientific Review Committee, and he is a member of the School of Health Sciences Research and Research Training Committee. As well he contributes to the teaching of diagnostic radiography content in the Medical Radiation Sciences program.
