Professor Graham Galloway

Director, National Imaging Facility

Office of the Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Research)

Overview

  • Professor Galloway’s research career has always placed him at the forefront of developments in the field, from his first postdoctoral fellowship at Oxford University, coinciding with the arrival of the first whole body magnetic resonance system capable of performing MR spectroscopy, to leading the team to install the first 7T MRI in Australia.
  • Publications include the first human liver and heart spectra, novel pulse sequences for volume selection and water suppression and the first 3D FSE echo experiments.
  • Three years working in industry, coordinating the development of the user interface and advanced applications for the current MRI product.
  • His role in all projects is characterised by his multidisciplinary background, which ensures that he is able to draw together these apparently disparate threads.
  • Prof. Galloway leads the Biomedical MRI group at the University of Queensland. As a CI in both the CCRE Spine and the Australian Mouse Brain Mapping Consortium (NHMRC Enabling), Prof Galloway provides leadership in the imaging aspects across a range of major collaborative initiatives, finding innovative solutions to novel problems, of breaking new ground, of pushing the envelope of research using MR
  • Prof. Galloway was the instigator for the innovative Magnetic Resonance Technology postgraduate education program, a distance based program, expanded in 2006 to an internal program, delivering advanced MR physics and applications, currently delivered to over 120 students in 4 continents of the world. Established as one of the leading programs of its type, past and current students are referring colleagues to the program.
  • In line with his passion for both education and outreach, Professor Galloway is leading a UQx MOOC in Biomedical Imaging

Research Impacts

In addition to competitive funding, CI Galloway has been instrumental in establishing collaborative research infrastructure in Australia.

In 2006, he led the collaborative team that developed the Investment plan for Imaging, within NCRIS. This plan was accepted by DEST, with $7M Commonwealth funding, plus $10M state and institutional funding and Galloway was nominated by the Imaging Community as the Inaugural Director of Operations of the National Imaging Facility. In this role he provides leadership to the NIF as it develops a strategic vision for imaging in Australia. Under his leadership, NIF was expanded, through a $40.2M project under Round 3 of the Education Investment Fund. With state and institutional funding, this is a $106M project. He has driven the recent proposals for ongoing operational support for NIF, resulting in a further $6.5M, through the CRIS and NCRIS2013 programs. He is passionate about providing open access to the imaging resources, and enabling effective use of those resources.

He was a leader in the successful bids for the NeCTAR Characterisation Virtual laboratory ($1.6M) and an ANDS Application Project for a Brain Mapping National Resource ($400,000)
