    BioDr. Donghoon Kim is a postdoctoral scholar at Stanford's Center for Advanced Functional Neuroimaging. Before joining Stanford, he earned his Ph.D. in Biomedical Engineering from University of California, Davis, supervised by Dr. Youngkyoo Jung. His Ph.D. thesis was titled "Deep Learning-Driven Technical Developments and Clinical Applications of Arterial Spin Labeling MRI". During his Ph.D. studies, he focused on the development of advanced deep learning techniques for ASL MRI, and its clinical applications. During his master's degree in Biomedical Engineering at Virginia Tech-Wake Forest University, he studied the functional connectivity of the default mode network using resting state BOLD fMRI among youth football players, supervised by Dr. Christopher Whitlow and Dr. Youngkyoo Jung.

    Current Research and Scholarly InterestsI work on imaging-guided therapy using PET and MR imaging approaches. My academic training and background is in molecular imaging. During my doctoral training, I developed and validated a PET imaging approach for evaluating endocrine therapy responses in advanced breast cancer. My current research focuses on imaging tumor immune markers and responses to cancer immunotherapy. The goal is to develop new imaging toolboxes to monitor and guide treatment. Specifically, I employ antibodies, nanoparticles, and reporter genes for imaging and combinations of therapies to modulate and restore the body's suppressed immune functions against cancer cells. This is being done in collaboration with teams of researchers in early clinical development and teams in clinical practice.
