BIOGRAPHY

Dr. Lei Xing is currently the Jacob Haimson Professor of Medical Physics and Director of Medical Physics Division of Radiation Oncology Department at Stanford University. He also holds affiliate faculty positions in Departments of Electric Engineering (courtesy), Biomedical Informatics, Bio-X and Molecular Imaging Program at Stanford. Dr. Xing obtained his PhD in Physics from the Johns Hopkins University in 1992 and received his Medical Physics training at the University of Chicago. He has been a member of the Radiation Oncology faculty at Stanford since 1997. He is also an affiliated faculty member in Stanford’s Department of Electrical Engineering, Biomedical Informatics Program, Molecular Imaging Program at Stanford, and Bio-X program. His research has been focused on inverse treatment planning, artificial intelligence (AI) in medicine, tomographic image reconstruction, CT, optical and PET imaging instrumentations, image guided interventions, nanomedicine, and applications of molecular imaging in radiation oncology. Dr. Xing is an author on more than 300 peer-reviewed publications, a co-inventor on many issued and pending patents, and a co-investigator or principal investigator on numerous NIH, DOD, NSF, ACS grants and projects from other funding agencies and corporates. He and his lab members have received numerous awards from ACS, AAPM, ASTRO, WMIC, RSNA and industrial companies such as Varian, Google, NVIDIA, and Siemens in the past decade. Dr. Xing is on the editorial boards of a number of journals in radiation physics and medical imaging. He is a fellow of AAPM and AIMBE (American Institute for Medical and Biological Engineering).
