Research Interest: 

A graduate of Yale University School of Medicine, Dr. Lui completed her radiology residency and neuroradiology fellowship at NYU. Her research expertise is in the use of novel MR imaging techniques to study brain trauma.

Dr. Lui is faculty at the School of Medicine and Sackler School of Biomedical Sciences. She is an expert in clinical neuroimaging including interpretation of brain and spinal cord imaging and has a lifelong commitment to education. She previously served as Associate Fellowship Program Director at Montefiore Medical Center and Fellowship Program Director at NYU. She developed curricula which are validated in the literature and currently used by over two dozen fellowship training programs throughout North America. She is the recipient of teaching prizes both here at NYU and at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine and RSNA Visiting Professor to the People’s Republic of China in 2008. She has mentored numerous medical students, residents and fellows locally and also participated in national mentoring programs through the ASNR and RSNA.

Dr. Lui is a leader in neuroradiology: She serves as reviewer for intramural, foundation, as well as NIH scientific review committees; She is a board examiner for the American Board of Radiology; She has lectured widely on neurological disorders; She has been a moderator at several national and international meetings including Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) and American Society of Neuroradiology (ASNR); She is a member of the editorial staff for the American Journal of Neuroradiology, for which she serves as Editor of the AJNR Podcast which sees over 12,000 downloads worldwide each month. She is a member of the Executive Committee for the New York Roentgen Society.

Her research expertise is on Traumatic Brain Injury and she leads a multidisciplinary translational research team using novel MR imaging techniques to study metabolic, functional and tissue structural alterations after injury. She has received federal funding (CTSA and NINDS) as PI on two projects investigating TBI including a RO1 grant.
