Career Summary

Biography

Dr Ramadan is a Senior Lecturer within the School of Health Sciences, Faculty of Health. He received his PhD from the School of Chemistry, The University of Sydney in 2000. He spent two years studying red blood cells by NMR techniques, followed by studying the effect of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs on rat stomach using NMR. He was then appointed as senior researcher at the Institute for Magnetic Resonance Research at Royal North Shore Hospital. In 2007, he moved to Boston, MA to take a position of Physicist at the Brigham and Women's Hospital, and became an Instructor in Radiology at Harvard Medical School. He was integrally involved in the development of MRI Research Policy at Brigham and Women’s Hospital. Technical interests include MRI/MRS pulse sequence development for Siemens (Syngo) platforms, where he worked on many different platforms. Spectroscopic as well as MRI diffusion-weighted sequences were developed for Syngo platforms. He also has experience in designing new RF shapes, designing spectroscopic editing sequences, as well as two-dimensional correlation spectroscopy. His research activities involve programming and evaluating novel MR imaging and spectroscopic techniques for investigation of human disease, as well as analysis and data post processing.

A growing body of literature has indicated that fucose-a(1-2)-galactose sugars are implicated in the molecular mechanisms that underlie neuronal development, learning and memory in the human brain. An understanding of the in vivo roles played by these terminal fucose residues has been hampered by the lack of technology to non-invasively monitor their levels in the human brain. We have implemented in vivo two-dimensional MRS technology to examine the human brain in a 3-T clinical MR scanner, and report that six fucose-a(1-2)-galactose residues and free a-fucose are available for inspection. Fucose-a(1-3)-galactose residues cannot yet be assigned using this technology as they resonate under the water resonance. This new application offers an unprecedented insight into the molecular mechanisms by which fucosylated sugars contribute to neuronal processes and how they alter during development, ageing and disease.

2015Leong KM, Lau P, Ramadan S, 'Utilisation of MR spectroscopy and diffusion weighted imaging in predicting and monitoring of breast cancer response to chemotherapy', Journal of Medical Imaging and Radiation Oncology, (2015)

Summary: Neoadjuvant chemotherapy (NACT) is the standard treatment option for breast cancer as more data shows that pathologic complete response (pCR) after NACT correlates with improved prognosis. MRI is accepted as the best imaging modality for evaluating the response to NACT in many studies as compared with clinical examination and other imaging modalities. In vivo magnetic resonance spectroscopy (MRS) and diffusion-weighted imaging (DWI) studies have both emerged as potential tools to provide early response indicators based on the changes in the metabolites and the apparent diffusion coefficient (ADC) respectively. In this review article, we aim to discuss the strength and limitations of MRS and DWI in monitoring of early response breast cancer to NACT.

Transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) is a non-invasive intervention altering neural plasticity by modulating neuronal excitability of pre- and postsynaptic neuron populations, which has been shown to improve depression symptoms and cognition. We investigated the effects of a single session of 20 min of 2 mA left-prefrontal anodal versus sham stimulation on auditory event-related potentials (ERPs) in 11 male and 5 female healthy subjects (mean age of 28.6 [SD 6.2] years) by employing a randomized single-blind crossover design. Stimulation effects on cortical glutamate (Glu) and glutamine (Glx) levels were subsequently measured in 12 of the 16 healthy subjects in a 3 T proton magnetic resonance spectroscopy scan. tDCS was associated with a significant increase of N1 amplitudes while smaller P3b amplitudes correlated with higher cortical Glu and Glx levels in the stimulated brain area when performing an auditory go/no-go discrimination task. tDCS did not change mismatch negativity, nor task performance or cortical Glu/Glx levels which, together with N1 amplitudes, depended on stimulation order ("sham" versus "active"). Increased N1 amplitudes are consistent with higher levels of cortical excitability following prefrontal anodal tDCS. The failure to replicate Glu/Glx changes with tDCS may have been masked by between-session carry-over effects while ceiling effects may have masked tDCS effects on task performance. © 2014 Elsevier GmbH.

2013Ramadan S, Lin A, Stanwell P, 'Glutamate and glutamine: A review of in vivo MRS in the human brain', NMR in Biomedicine, 26 1630-1646 (2013) [C1]

Our understanding of the roles that the amino acids glutamate (Glu) and glutamine (Gln) play in the mammalian central nervous system has increased rapidly in recent times. Many conditions are known to exhibit a disturbance in Glu-Gln equilibrium, and the exact relationships between these changed conditions and these amino acids are not fully understood. This has led to increased interest in Glu/Gln quantitation in the human brain in an array of conditions (e.g. mental illness, tumor, neuro-degeneration) as well as in normal brain function. Accordingly, this review has been undertaken to describe the increasing number of in vivo techniques available to study Glu and Gln separately, or pooled as 'Glx'. The present MRS methods used to assess Glu and Gln vary in approach, complexity, and outcome, thus the focus of this review is on a description of MRS acquisition approaches, and an indication of relative utility of each technique rather than brain pathologies associated with Glu and/or Gln perturbation. Consequently, this review focuses particularly on (1) one-dimensional 1H MRS, (2) two-dimensional 1H MRS, and (3) one-dimensional 13C MRS techniques. © 2013 John Wiley & Sons, Ltd.
