Peter Barker has been active in magnetic resonance spectroscopy research since 1981, where, as a student in Ray Freeman’s group in Oxford, he worked on pulsed-field gradient NMR, 2D-NMR, and broadband decoupling techniques. In 1986, as a post-doc at Huntington Memorial Research Institutes in Pasadena, he began working with Brian Ross on MRS in vivo.  Since joining the Department of Radiology at Johns Hopkins in 1989, he shifted his research focus to clinical MRS of the human brain. He continues to work on technique development for quantitative MR spectroscopic imaging in humans, particularly for applications in oncology, neurology and psychiatry.
