Xiaochuan Pan received his B. S. in Physics from Beijing University in 1982, M. S. in Physics from Institute of Physics of Academia Sinica in 1985, M. S. and Ph. D. in Physics from The University of Chicago in 1988 and in 1991. He subsequently became a post-doctoral fellow, and then an NIH post-doctoral fellow, in medical imaging physics in the Department of Radiology at The University of Chicago before being promoted to the rank of Assistant Professor in November 1994. He is currently a full Professor with tenure in the Department of Radiology, Department of Radiation and Cellular Oncology, the College, the Committee on Medical Physics, and the Comprehensive Cancer Center at The University of Chicago.
Dr. Pan’s research interest centers on imaging science and its biomedical applications. He, along with his team, publishes actively on their research results. Dr. Pan has received numerous awards for his contributions to medical imaging, and is a Fellow of the American Association of Physicists in Medicine (AAPM), the American Institute for Medical and Biological Engineering (AIMBE), the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), the Optical Society of America (OSA), and the Society of Photo-Optical Instrumentation Engineers (SPIE).
He has served, and is serving, as the chair and/or a charter member of study sections and/or grant reviewer for National Institutes of Health (NIH), National Science Foundation (NSF), National Science Foundation of China (NSFC), Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERCC), and numerous other funding agencies and universities. He is an Associate Editor, or member of Editorial Boards, for a number of journals in the field, including IEEE Transaction on Medical Imaging, IEEE Transactions on Biomedical Engineering, Physics in Medicine and Biology, Computerized Medical Imaging and Graphics, Journal of Cardiovascular CT, IEEE Journal of Translational Engineering in Health and Medicine, Journal of X-ray Science and Technology, and Computed Tomography Theory and Applications. Dr. Pan has also served, and is serving, as conference chair, program chair, theme chair, session chair, and technical or scientific committee member of international conferences such as Conferences of IEEE Biomedical Engineering Society, IEEE Medical Imaging, Radiological Society of North America (RSNA), and American Association of Physicists in Medicine (AAPM).
Dr. Pan is mentoring, and has mentored, a number of students and post-doctoral fellows, who have also received numerous awards for their accomplishments. Most of his past students and post-docs have successfully developed their own research programs in academic institutions and leading industrial R&D centers, establishing themselves as active investigators recognized by the peers in their research areas.
