Personal profile

Research interests

Manu S. Goyal, MD, MSc. is a neuroradiologist in the Mallinckrodt Institute of Radiology, double board-certified in neurology and radiology. His research is similarly integrative as it strives to combine imaging, genomic, and metabolomic approaches to investigations in the human brain. His prior work, with Professor Marcus Raichle, found that aerobic glycolysis, a form of metabolism typical of cancer, is also typical of the brain during childhood. Further, they found that its persistence in certain regions of the adult brain is related to ongoing synaptic plasticity and myelination. Dr. Goyal now plans to develop an integrated omics approach to studying the human brain, and use this to more fully understand brain metabolism in the context of normal function, development, and recovery from brain injury such as stroke.
