Radiology Personnel

Kurt Weaver, Ph.D.

Research Assistant Professor


Kurt Weaver, PhD, is a Postdoctoral Fellow in the Radiology Department at the University of Washington. He received a Master’s Degree in cognitive neuroscience from Boston University where he studied under Dr. Chatnal Stern. He did his doctorate work at Oregon Health & Science University within the Behavioral Neuroscience Department. Dr. Weaver began his post-doctoral work at the the University of Washington in the fall of 2006, under the guidance of Dr. Elizabeth Aylward. At the University of Washington, Dr. Weaver has combined more quantitative MR technologies, specifically MR spectroscopy and diffusion tensor imaging to examine the white matter abnormalities in individuals with Huntington’s Disease.
