    About Me

    Dr. Johannes Czernin received his MD degree from the University of Vienna, Austria in 1983.  He was board certified in Internal Medicine in 1989 and subsequently started his career at UCLA as a postdoctoral fellow in Dr. Heinrich Schelbert’s lab. He was board certified in nuclear medicine in 1996, and became the director of nuclear medicine at the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA in 1996.  He currently serves as the Chief of the Ahmanson Translational Imaging Division at UCLA. Together with Dr. Caius Radu he has established an exciting and well funded research environment which has grown substantially over the last several years. The Division includes the Nuclear Medicine Clinic, a clinical imaging research program, a drug and probe development program with a strong underpinning in tumor biology, and a new preclinical imaging center.  The success of the Division is based on extensive collaborations within the department of molecular and medical pharmacology and across several other departments including medicine, surgery, radiology, neurology, pathology and others. Dr. Czernin has served as the president of the Academy of Molecular Imaging and has published more than 160 peer -reviewed research papers.
