Professor elected to the Washington State Academy of Sciences

Xiaoming Yang, M.D., Ph.D., M.S., professor of radiology and director of the Image-Guided Bio-Molecular Intervention Laboratory, was among 25 new members recently elected to the Washington State Academy of Sciences (WSAS). Dr. Yang is the first faculty member from the Department of Radiology to be inducted into the WSAS.

Dr. Yang was selected “for work as an internationally prominent physician-scientist in the field of image-guided minimally invasive interventional therapies” and “for pioneering contributions and outstanding achievements in developing innovative and cutting-edge medical imaging and interventional radiology for effective management of life-threatening diseases, such as atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease and cancer.”

Joining the academy is a recognition of “their outstanding record of scientific and technical achievement, and their willingness to work on behalf of the Academy to bring the best available science to bear on issues within the State of Washington.”

New members to the Washington State Academy of Sciences will be formally inducted in September. For more information, visit the WSAS website.
