Dr. Jimmy Roehrig M.S. ’88 has joined Matakina International, a leader in the development of objective volumetric measurement of breast density. Roehrig will provide scientific depth to the U.S. sales effort and strategic planning for product development and intellectual property, particularly with the software Volpara, designed to help overcome the limitations of mammography to detect cancer in women with dense breasts; it generates objective, automatic measurement of volumetric breast density values along with a BI-RADS Breast Density Classification for mammograms acquired from any commercially available digital mammography system.
Roehrig, who co-founded R2 Technology, served as chief science officer and was responsible for building the technical team that produced the ImageChecker® computer-aided detection (CAD) system, the first CAD system approved by the FDA. As VP of Advanced Development, Dr. Roehrig led the development and refinement of R2’s proprietary algorithm for the earlier detection of breast cancer and managed efforts to apply the technology to other diseases. Upon the acquisition of R2 by Hologic, Inc, Dr. Roehrig remained until 2012, working primarily in the field of quantitative DCE MRI for breast imaging.

Taryn Hook J.D. 88's short story,"Pluto Rising," is included in the Literary Journal TheWritingDisorder.com's Anthology, Volume II. The Anthology presents the best short fiction published by the WritingDisorder.com in 2011. Hook is an author and private investigator living and working in the South Bay Area.
Taryn Hook, Esq., J.D. '88 writes that she "is credited with bringing a mysterious disease killing snakes all over the world to the attention of renowned scientist Dr. Joe DeRisi, Vice Chair of the Department of Biochemistry and Biophysics at UCSF. Hook, an amateur herpetologist, wrote DeRisi a letter imploring him to find a cure for Inclusion Body Disease, which killed two of her pet snakes and potentially affected another, Larry. In response, Dr. DeRisi researched the disease, and discovered that the cause of the illness appears to originate from a new set of viruses similar to the Ebola virus. A news article published by UCSF in August of this year relates that this new discovery potentially leads to diagnostics and treatment, making it possible to someday eliminate the disease from snake collections worldwide. Hook is featured in an UCSF and NPR story about Dr. DeRisi's groundbreaking discovery as well as on other major media outlets."
