Biography

Dr. Michael Kraut is a Professor in the Johns Hopkins Medicine Department of Radiology and and Radiological Science, an Assistant Professor of Neurological Surgery and a Professor of Oncology. His areas of clinical expertise include brain tumors and pediatrics.

Dr. Kraut received his undergraduate degree in B.S. in biomedical engineering from the University of Southern California, and M.D., M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in neuroscience from the Albert Einstein College of Medicine. After a residency in diagnostic radiology at Beth Israel Hospital in Boston, MA, he completed a fellowship in neuroradiology at The Johns Hopkins Hospital, and joined the Johns Hopkins faculty thereafter.

Dr. Kraut’s research interests include functional neuroimaging, especially as a tool to investigate cognitive operations and issues of visual and somatomotor function. A special interest, reflecting his background in neurophysiology, is the use of functional imaging techniques in concert with electrophysiologic measures in order to elucidate the temporal sequence as well as spatial distribution of neural activation.

In addition to his roles at Johns Hopkins, Dr. Kraut serves as the Medical Director at F.M. Kirby Research Center for Functional Brain Imaging.
