Summary

Dr Mengxing Tang joined the Department of Bioengineering, Imperial College as a Lecturer (Assistant Professor) in 2006 and became a Senior Lecturer in 2011 and a Reader in 2015. Before moving to London, he was a Departmental Lecturer in the Department of Engineering Science, University of Oxford. Dr Tang leads the Ultrasound Laboratory for Imaging and Sensing (ULIS). His current research mainly focuses on developing new imaging and image analysis methodologies using ultrasound and its allied techniques for quantifying physiological flow, tissue perfusion, tissue mechanical properties and molecular information and their applications in a wide range of clinical and pre-clinical applications including cardiovascular diseases and cancer.

Mengxing’s research publications can be found at the tab above, or on Google Scholar

A PhD studentship on medical imaging is available.

Imperial College also has a number of competitive PhD scholarships open to all candidates. Please contact Dr Mengxing Tang (mtang1@ic.ac.uk) if you are interested.
