    Z. Jane Wang, MD is an associate professor and co-director of the Body Research Interest Group (RIG) in the Department of Radiology and Biomedical Imaging at the University of California, San Francisco. She received her undergraduate degree in Electrical Engineering from Brown University, and her medical degree from Northwestern University Medical School. She completed her residency training in Diagnostic Radiology at UCSF in 2007, serving as a Chief Resident from 2006-2007. Dr. Wang subsequently completed a fellowship in Abdominal Imaging at UCSF. She joined the UCSF faculty in 2008.

    Dr. Wang’s research interests primarily focus on identification of novel imaging techniques and their development into practical and clinically useful diagnostic tools. Her research program includes hyperpolarized 13C MR spectroscopic imaging (MRSI) to assess renal tumor aggressiveness and diffuse renal disease (nephropathy), as well as quantitative imaging in pancreatic cancer.

    Dr. Wang has been invited to lecture on various topics in Abdominal Imaging at multiple radiology societies, including the Society of Abdominal Radiology, American Roentgen Ray Society, Radiological Society of North America, as well as internationally at the Asian-Oceanian Congress of Radiology, International Education Conference Program in Mexico, and the Brazilian Congress of Radiology.
