Mr Physicist, Rad/Radiological Sciences Laboratory
Bio Dr Kang received his PhD in Physics and MS in Computer Science from Indiana University Bloomington in September of 1998. Then he joined Diagnostic Imaging Science Center at University of Washington in Seattle for postdoctoral research.
In September of 2000, he worked as an MR Physicist in the Human Cognitive Neurophysiology Laboratory in Department of Neurology at University of Californian at Davis. His tasks were to maintain and modify the sequences for MR research on a 3 T Siemens Verio scanner and a 1.5 T Philips Eclipse scanner, and develop new procedures for MR data analysis, statistics and visualization. He has published 20+ papers to introduce the innovative methods for MR data analysis, which including the local landmark method, high-resolution space method, and cortical surface projection mapping method, and automated method to detect brain abnormalities. All of the methods have been applied successfully to the MR researches in the lab.
In September of 2017, he joined as an MR Physicist in Palo Alto Veterans Institute for Research (PAVIR) at VA Palo Alto and the Adamson Brain Stimulation Lab in the Department of Neurosurgery at Stanford University.His main tasks are to participate in the research projects funded by Department of Veterans Affairs and Department of Defense, and administration of windows and linux servers for neuroimaging studies.

Eric J. Keller
Postdoctoral Medical Fellow, Radiology
Current Research and Scholarly Interests I am primarily working on developing applied ethics, a practical, ground-up approach to helping clinicians navigate sticky/challenging situations in healthcare. I also study professional cultures in healthcare, i.e., clinician-administration relationships or how does an internist think differently than a general surgeon and how does this affect their behaviors.
Jeffrey Howard Kleck
Adjunct Professor, Rad/Molecular Imaging Program at Stanford
Bio Jeff is an Adjunct Professor at Stanford University, and an advisor to the University?s leadership. He is an established Silicon Valley technology and software entrepreneur and has built several ventures from concept to market leader, in which he has served as Founder, CEO, and Chairman. Jeff has taken his ventures public on the NASDAQ and unified them into far-reaching commercial corporations. Jeff has participated as a visiting scientist at two national laboratories, and holds a PhD in Biomedical Physics from UCLA (former faculty); an MS in Engineering Management from Stanford University (current faculty); and, an MS and a BS in Nuclear Engineering from Texas A&M University.
Jeff is currently serving as a Highly Qualified Expert (HQE) in a public service engagement for the United States Government as the Director of the Cyber Portfolio at the Defense Innovation Unit (DIU) in Mountain View, California. Jeff and his team at the DIU are responsible for delivering transformational and strategic cyber capabilities to the military and strengthening the national security innovation base by accelerating the adoption of commercial technology.
Assistant Professor (Research) of Radiology (Musculoskeletal Imaging)
Current Research and Scholarly Interests My research is focused on the development and clinical translation of novel imaging techniques geared toward early detection of musculoskeletal disease. Current projects include whole-joint molecular imaging of early disease with PET-MRI, imaging of early cartilage changes in Osteoarthritis (OA) with GagCEST, rapid knee imaging and simultaneous bilateral knee MRI.
Mary Ellen Irene Koran
Affiliate, Dean's Office Operations - Dean Other
Bio Mary Ellen grew up in Annapolis, Maryland. She attended college at Duke University, where she majored in Biomedical Engineering with a minor in Chemistry. After graduation, Mary Ellen moved to Nashville, Tennessee to join the Medical Scientist Training Program (MSTP) and earned her combined MD/PhD at Vanderbilt University. She completed her PhD in Human Genetics in the laboratory of Dr. Tricia Thornton-Wells, where she studied the radiogenomics of Alzheimer?s Disease. She developed a pipeline of tools to analyze and quantify images from MR and PET images, which she then used as quantitative traits in genetic analyses to tease apart the etiology of Alzheimer Disease. She is continuing her quantitative MR and PET imaging research with various mentors across Stanford.
Outside of radiology, Mary Ellen is excited about curriculum development, wellness, mentorship, and leadership. She developed and co-leads the RadCombinator curriculum for protected research time for radiology residents, co-leads the radiology wellness committee, for which she secured funding for a resident wellness program, is a member of the GME Women in Medicine Leadership Council, and is co-chair of the GME Women in Medicine Community Development committee. She is also an active mentor through the Women in Medicine Mentorship Program and the Stanford Women Association of Physician Scientists (SWAPS).
Outside of work, Mary Ellen enjoys swimming with the Stanford Masters' team, shopping farmer's markets, mountain biking, and hiking the amazing trails around Northern California, all with her husband Cody. They also love playing with their dog, Bowser.
