      Dr. Mingxiong Huang is currently a Professor in the University of California, San Diego (UCSD)’s Department of Radiology (2004-present); an Adjunct Professor in UCSD's Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering; a career research health scientist and physicist at VA’s San Diego Healthcare System, and the Co-Director of the UCSD magnetoencephalography (MEG) Center.

      Dr. Huang received his PhD in biomedical physics from Northeastern University at Boston, Massachusetts, USA, in 1995, and his postdoctoral training in magnetoencephalography (MEG) from the Biophysics Group of Los Alamos National Laboratory during 1995-1997. Before his joined UCSD Radiology in 2004, he had been an Assistant Professor and Associate Professor in the University of New Mexico, Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA, during 1997-2004.

      Dr. Huang is a leading scientist with international reputation in developing advanced MEG source-imaging techniques, in integrating MEG with other structural and/or functional brain imaging techniques (such as diffusion tensor imaging), and in applying MEG to study neurological and psychiatric disorders in humans. He has had more than 25 years of experience in MEG research. He has focused on MEG resting-state signal as well as MEG responses evoked by somatosensory, motor, auditory, and visual stimuli. Dr. Huang had studied normal subjects, and patients with neurological disorders (such as traumatic brain injury (TBI), stroke or epilepsy) and psychiatric disorders (such as schizophrenia and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)). He has been leading author or co-author in over 90 peer-reviewed publications. Dr. Huang received Distinguished Investigator Award by North American Academy of Radiology Research in 2013.
