Xiaoliang Zhang, PhD, is a Professor and Director of the Parallel Imaging and High Field MR Technology Lab in the Department of Radiology and Program in Bioengineering at the University of California, San Francisco, a faculty member of California Institute of Biosciences (QB3), and a core faculty member of UCSF/UC Berkeley Joint Graduate Group in Bioengineering. Dr. Zhang obtained his PhD in Biomedical Engineering from the University of Minnesota, Minneapolis, and joined UCSF faculty in September 2006. He is professionally trained in the prestigious Center for Magnetic Resonance Research (CMRR) at the University of Minnesota.
Dr Zhang is an internationally recognized MR imaging scientist and a pioneer in the development of ultrahigh field MR technology for human MR imaging applications. Dr. Zhang’s research interests include fast MR imaging techniques for biomedical applications, electromagnetic problems and computational electromagnetism in in-vivo magnetic resonance imaging at high static fields, parallel imaging and compressed sensing based fast imaging methods, RF transceive arrays and system at ultra high magnetic fields, MRI compatibility and safety of implanted medical devices, steerable MR catheter imaging device, MagnetoFilter, and brain metabolism and function mapping using MRI.
Dr. Zhang has served as Principal Investigator, co-Principal Investigator and co-investigator for numerous NIH grants, and is a primary mentor in his trainee's NIH K99/R00 award (NIH Pathway to Independence Award). Dr. Zhang has published more than 200 journal articles, peer-reviewed conference papers and book chapters.
Dr Zhang is active in research community service, dedicating his time and effort to NIH study sections, grant reviews for many different countries and organizations, editorial boards of primary MR imaging journals, and teaching for ISMRM educational program and workshops. He has received many awards, including Distinguished Investigator Award bestowed by Academy of Radiology Research, Washington DC. He is President (elect) of Overseas Chinese Society for Magnetic Resonance in Medicine (OCSMRM).
