Dr. Baohong Yuan is an associate professor of bioengineering at the University of Texas at Arlington (UTA). Dr. Yuan joined UTA as an assistant professor in 2010. Before joining UTA, he was an assistant professor at Catholic University of America from 2007. From 2006 to 2007, Dr. Yuan worked at Columbia University as a postdoctoral research scientist. Dr. Yuan earned his PhD degree of Biomedical Engineering at University of Connecticut in 2006. Dr. Yuan’s expertise is in the fields of Physics and Biomedical Engineering, especially biomedical acoustic and optical imaging. His main interest is in the development of ultrasound-mediated fluorescence optical techniques for tumor structural, functional, molecular and genomic imaging. The long-term goal is to explore and develop new imaging modalities combined with the existing imaging techniques for understanding cancer mechanisms, early detecting and diagnosing cancers, and monitoring cancer treatment efficiency in living systems. Dr. Yuan has secured ~$3 Million of research funding as a principal investigator (PI) from Federal and State government and local agencies, such NSF (CAREER award), NIH, DOD, CPRIT and NHARP. He has published ~60 peer-reviewed joural papers and numerious conference papers/presentations. One U.S. patent has been formally issued in 2012 and two patent applications have been filed. He has served as an editor, a guess editor or an editorial board member for many academic journals, such as Scientific Reports, Journal of Biomedicla Optics, Technology in Cancer Research and Treatment, Journal of Molecular Biology and Molecular Imaging, International Journal of Optics, and Austin Journal of Biomedical Engineering. His major awards include NSF CAREER award, Outstanding Early Career Award (UTA), Strategic Research Appointments for Faculty (UTA), Kaman Award for Excellent in Research (CUA) and Burns Faculty Fellow (CUA).
