Nanyin Zhang, PhD
Dr. Nanyin Zhang received his B. S. in Biomedical Engineering from Zhejiang University in China in 2000, and Ph. D. in Biomedical Engineering from the University of Minnesota in USA in 2005. He subsequently became a post-doctoral fellow, and then a research-associate fellow, in the Center of Magnetic Resonance Research (CMRR) at the University of Minnesota before being promoted to the rank of Research Assistant Professor there in 2007. In 2009, Dr. Zhang moved to the University of Massachusetts Medical School. He is currently a tenure-track Assistant Professor at the Center for Comparative NeuroImaging (CCNI). Dr. Zhang’s research interest encompasses multiple aspects of neuroimaging by using functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) including using fMRI to understand neural responses and brain circuitry at normal conditions and in various mental disorders both in human and animal models.
