Dr. Strother received a PhD in Electrical Engineering from McGill University, Montreal in 1986, for developing early Positron Emission Tomography (PET) techniques at the Montreal Neurological Institute. After a fellowship at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, New York, in 1989 he joined the VA Medical Center, Minneapolis as senior PET Physicist, and Assistant Professor of Radiology at the University of Minnesota where he became Professor of Radiology in 2002. In 2004 he moved to Toronto as a senior scientist at the Rotman Research Institute (RRI), Baycrest, and Professor of Medical Biophysics at the University of Toronto. His research interests include neuro-informatics and high-performance computing with a focus on optimization of PET, fMRI/MRI and EEG neuroimaging pipelines using statistical and machine-learning techniques. He applies these pipelines to cognitive studies of aging, and through leadership roles in the Brain-CODE data repository and multi-site neurodegeneraton and depression research programs funded by the Ontario Brain Institute. He is a cofounder of Predictek, Inc., and ADMdx in Chicago, medical analysis and diagnostics companies, an Associate Editor for Human Brain Mapping and Frontiers in Neuroscience: Brain Imaging Methods, and a past member of the Neuro-technology Review Committee and past chairman of an international Neuroinformatics Standards Committee at the National Institutes of Health, USA. He is also co-chair of the International Traumatic Brain Injury Neuroimaging working group, and is a Canadian representative on the Council for Training, Science and Infrastructure at the International Neuroinformatics Coordinating Facility based in Stockholm, Sweden.
