Richard A.E. Edden, M.Sc., Ph.D.
Associate Professor of Radiology and Radiological Science
Research Interests: In vivo magnetic resonance spectroscopy (MRS)
Dr. Richard Edden is an Associate Professor in the Johns Hopkins Medicine Department of Radiology and Radiological Science. His research focuses on the development of new magnetic resonance spectroscopy (MRS) methods and the application of existing methods to investigate the brain.
Dr. Edden received his undergraduate and graduate degree in the chemistry from the University of Cambridge as a scholar of Selwyn College. He completed a fellowship at the Schools of Biosciences and Chemistry at Cardiff University in Wales.

Research & Publications
Dr. Edden’s research is concerned with both the development of new MRS methods and the application of existing methods to investigate the brain. One technical area of his research relates to the behavior of coupled spin systems (such as lactate, citrate, GABA, and Glx) during localized spectroscopy experiments. Specifically, he investigates the interplay between finite-bandwidth slice-selective pulses and the chemical shift difference between coupled spins.
