Ping Wang, PhD

Associate Professor
Neuroimaging Research

Ping Wang, PhD, is an associate professor in the Neuroimaging Innovation Center in the Department of Translational Neuroscience at Barrow Neurological Institute.

Dr. Wang’s expertise includes the development and application of novel magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) biomarkers for a more complete and accurate characterization of tissue composition and physical and chemical changes associated with pathology. He is a member of the International Society for Magnetic Resonance in Medicine and a senior member of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers.

Dr. Wang earned his master’s degree in electronic engineering from the North China Institute of Technology in Taiyuan Shanxi, China. He earned his doctorate in information and communication from the School of Electronic and Information Engineering at Xi’an Jiaotong University in Xi’an Shaanxi, China. He completed postdoctoral research fellowships in the Department of Radiation Oncology at Wake Forest University School of Medicine in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, and at Vanderbilt University Institute of Imaging Science in Nashville, Tennessee.

Dr. Wang’s current research focuses on the biophysical origins of MRI signals in vivo that give rise to useful image contrast. He has a particular interest in investigating the molecular and cellular basis of T1, T2, T, ADC, qMT, and CEST. He aims to use this understanding to develop better methods of imaging and to help interpret the imaging results in various neurological disorders, including neuromuscular and central nervous system diseases.
