Biography

Dr. Yang is a UW professor and director of image-guided bio-molecular interventions research in the Department of Radiology at the University of Washington School of Medicine. He is also an attending physician of interventional radiology at UW Medical Center, and holds an appointment as a senior lecturer of radiology at Kuopio University in Finland and as an attending physician of radiology qualified in European community countries.
 
Dr. Yang received his M.D. in 1983 from Suzhou University School of Medicine, China. He then received a master’s degree of medical science in 1986 from the Chinese Academy of Medical Sciences and Peking Union Medical University in Beijing, followed by a Ph.D. of medical science in 1991 from Kuopio University, Finland.
 
Dr. Yang completed his residencies in radiology at Peking Union Hospital in Beijing and Kuopio University Hospital in Finland, followed by post-doctoral fellowships at Johns Hopkins University and the University of Washington. In 2002, Dr. Yang was appointed associate professor and co-director of the Center for Image-Guided Interventions at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine.
 
Because of his special background of both a physician and a scientist, Dr. Yang is functioning as a unique “bridge” linking bench research and clinical practice. Dr. Yang has received over $12,000,000 in funding from US National Institutes of Health (NIH) and other funding agencies. As one of the pioneers, Dr. Yang has created several new concepts and technologies on medical imaging and interventional radiology in the world, including developments of intraluminal MR imaging and interventions, MRI-tracking of stem cells in vascular diseases, imaging of vascular gene therapy, and interventional molecular imaging.
