Introduction

白瑞良Dr. Bai received his Ph.D. degree from the Biophysics program at University of Maryland (UMD) and the Graduation Participation Program at National Institutes of Health (NIH) in 2015, under the mentorship of Prof. Robert Briber (UMD) and Dr. Peter Basser (NIH). After graduation, he further took a Postdoctoral Visiting Fellow position at NIH with Dr. Peter Basser. In Oct. 2017, Dr. Bai will join Interdisciplinary Institute of Neuroscience and Technology at Zhejiang University (ZIINT) as an Associate Professor. In his Ph.D. thesis and postdoc work, Dr. Bai focused on (1) inventing “bloodless” functional MRI contrast mechnisms to detect neuronal activity direct, fast, and accurate enough for whole brain functional mapping; (2)  developing fast multidimensional MRI relaxation/diffusion spectroscopy for tissue microstructure characterization; and (3) studying water (and ions) dynamics in healthy and pathological cells and tissue and its detection with MRI. In recognition of him as a young researcher of outstanding quality and promise, with a siginificant potential for leading the scientific field, Dr. Bai was elected as the International Society for Magnetic Resonance in Medicine (ISMRM) Junior Fellow in 2017.


白瑞良:副教授,课题组组长。美国马里兰大学取得博士学位,后在美国国立卫生研究院(NIH)担任博士后研究员工作2年。当选国际医学磁共振协会ISMRM Junior Fellow(全球每年大约十人), 获得海外华人医学磁共振协会青年科学家(第一名),美国国立卫生研究院博士生杰出研究奖,并多次获得ISMRM年会的最佳论文奖等奖项。实验室从事新型脑影像技术方面的研究,主要针对中枢神经系统疾病诊断以及脑科学与认知的需求,开发高级磁共振成像序列及磁共振信号分析模型。 主要研究方向包括:新型脑功能影像、脑微观组织结构磁共振成像、 脑代谢成像、 中枢神经系统疾病诊断、脑中风诊断等。
