Zhipeng Cao, PhD, earned his undergraduate degree in nuclear engineering at Tsinghua University in Beijing, China and his Ph.D. in Biomedical Engineering at Pennsylvania State University, University Park, PA. He completed his postdoctoral training at Vanderbilt University. Dr. Cao is a Research Assistant Professor for the Department of Radiology and Radiological Sciences and Biomedical Engineering. His research is focused on translational 7T MRI research, specifically, to develop 7T CEST, T1rho, ASL imaging protocols based on multi-transmit RF pulse design and multi-channel receive reconstruction methods, and to demonstrate the scientific and clinical values. He is a member of the International Society for Magnetic Resonance in Medicine (ISMRM) and the Biomedical Engineering Society (BMES).
