Pai-Feng Yang, PhD, earned a BS and MS in Biomedical Engineering from Chung Yuan Christian University and a PhD in Electrical Engineering from National Taiwan University in Taipai, Taiwan. He worked as a Research Associate for three years and completed a research fellowship at the National Taiwan University, Institute of Zoology. In 2012, he joined the Vanderbilt faculty as a Postdoctoral Research Associate. He is a member for the Society of Neuroscience. His current research project involves focused ultrasound modulates region-specific brain activity of no-human primate at 7T and effects of monkey's spinal cord injury on nociceptive heat evoked fMRI responses at 9.4T.
