Bonnie N. Joe, MD, PhD, is a Professor in Residence and Chief of Breast Imaging in the Department of Radiology and Biomedical Imaging at the University of California, San Francisco. Developing a breat imaging program was a natural progression of Dr. Joe’s research interest in breast MRI, female pelvic MRI, and fetal MRI. Dr. Joe completed her PhD in Electrical and Computer Engineering/Biomedical Engineering from Carnegie Mellon University, Pittsburgh in 1995. She obtained her medical degree from the University of Pittsburgh in 1997, and completed her residency in Diagnostic Radiology at Mallinckrodt Institute of Radiology, Barnes Jewish Hospital in St. Louis, followed by a fellowship in Magnetic Resonance Imaging at Mallinckrodt Institute of Radiology and a fellowship in Breast Imaging at UCSF.
Dr. Joe is a member of the UCSF Executive Research Council. She is a leader in advancing imaging-based approaches to breast cancer diagnosis, earlier detection, and reduction of disease recurrence and improved survival. For several years, Dr. Joe has led a multi-disciplinary research team in the search of MR detectable biomarkers of fetal lung maturity.
Dr. Joe has special expertise in breast imaging and abdominal-pelvic imaging, and with her expertise she has served as Principal Investigator and Co-Investigator for several grant projects related to her research.
