WUHAN, China（June 29th, 2023）- Wuhan Optoelectronics Forum No. 187 was successfully held in Auditorium C117 at Wuhan National Laboratory for Optoelectronics (WNLO) in the morning of June 29th. Academician Huabei Jiang from the Center for Advanced Biomedical Imaging, Department of Medical Engineering, University of South Florida (USF) delivered an inspiring speech entitled Looking at and Listening to Light: A Fantastic World of New Biomedical Imaging. Professor Yong Deng chaired the forum and Professor Wei Xiong awarded Academician Huabei Jiang the forum medal.
Academician Jiang Huabei introduced several optical imaging modalities, including Diffuse Optical Tomography (DOT), Photoacoustic Tomography (PAT), and Thermoacoustic Tomography (TAT). He introduced the latest clinical and pre-clinical research of his team in these areas, including 1) DOT for visualization of brain function in different psychiatric disorders; 2) PAT for in vivo imaging of alcohol exposure and fetal cerebral vasculatures in mice and detecting dynamic vascular changes in the foot vessels of diabetic patients; 3) TAT for detection of rheumatoid arthritis and TAT image-guided thermal ablation of liver cancer. At the end of the speech, he shared his future research directions, including whole-body wearable DOT and simultaneous multimodal (optical, sound, and heat) imaging. The atmosphere at the report was lively, and the teachers and students of the research center had a lively exchange with Professor Wang on the content of the report.
Dr. Huabei Jiang started his professional career as an assistant professor of physics at Clemson University in 1997 and became a full professor there promptly in 2003. He joined the University of Florida (UF) as a founding senior faculty in biomedical engineering in 2005 and became the J. Crayton Pruitt Family endowed chair professor there in 2008. Dr. Jiang joined the University of South Florida (USF) in 2017 as the founding Professor of medical engineering and Director of the USF Center for Advanced Biomedical Imaging. He is a Fellow of Optical Society of America (OSA/Optica), International Society for Optical Engineering (SPIE) and American Institute for Medical and Biological Engineering (AIMBE). He has published over 500 peer-reviewed scientific articles and patents. He is also the author of four books on diffuse optical (CRC Press 2011), photoacoustic (CRC Press 2014), thermoacoustic (IOP Publishing 2020) and fluorescence molecular (Springer 2022) tomography. Dr. Jiang has used optics in highly innovative ways to make pioneering and seminal contributions to several fields including diffuse optical tomography (DOT), photoacoustic tomography (PAT), fluorescence molecular tomography (FMT), bioluminescence tomography (BLT), and thermoacoustic tomography (TAT).
