Professor and Oklahoma TSET Cancer Research Scholar
Dr. Zheng received his Bachelor and Master degree of Engineering in the major of Optical Engineering and Instrumentation from Shanghai Institute of Mechanical Engineering, China, and a doctoral degree of Electrical Engineering from University of Delaware, USA, in 1993.
During 1993 to 2013, Dr. Zheng has been working in the Medical Imaging Research Center, University of Pittsburgh. His research interest and work focused on the development and evaluation of computer-aided detection and diagnosis (CAD) schemes of medical images that include mammograms and magnetic resonance image (MRI) for breast cancer, computed tomography (CT) images for lung diseases, and microscopic cytogenetic images for leukemia and cervical cancer. After joining the faculty in University of Oklahoma in May 2013, Dr. Zheng continues his research work in the fields of developing and optimizing interactive CAD schemes that aim to provide clinicians “visual-aided” tools in cancer diagnosis, developing and validating the computerized biomarkers extracted from the biomedical images and electrical signals in order to help improve accuracy and reliability of assessing cancer prognosis and treatment efficacy.
