Sung-Cheng (Henry) Huang receives 2010 Benedict Cassen Prize for Research in Nuclear Medicine
Date:6/7/2010

al Meeting, Huang gave the Cassen Lectureship on the prospective of quantitative imaging. The lecture focused on learning more about molecular processes and pathways in cellular function using labeled biomarkers and integrating information for practical applications. Huang says that as imaging technology becomes more sophisticated, there is a greater need for analytical approaches that can analyze the image data, extract biological information and determine its medical relevance.

"The potential behind quantitative imaging in nuclear medicine is staggering," said Huang. "I am excited to see what new advances lie beyond the horizon for biomedical imaging to understand diseases and help people like never before."

Huang earned a Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering (BSEE) from National Taiwan University in 1966 and did his graduate study at Washington University in St. Louis, Mo., where he received a Masters (MSEE) and Doctor of Science (D.Sc.) in electrical engineering and biomedical engineering in 1973.

During his career at UCLA, Huang has served as the principal investigator for 43 research grants, resulting in millions of dollars for the advancement of science and the training of numerous students in the field. He has published more than 300 research papers in some of the most established journals, more than 580 abstracts and presentations, 24 book chapters, and is the recipient of several patents and software copyrights. He has also served (or is currently serving) as deputy chief editor, associate editor or editorial board consultant for major journals in his field such as The Journal of Nuclear Medicine, The Journal of Cerebral Blood Flow and Metabolism and Molecular Imaging and Biology.

Under Huang's tutelage, many of his graduate students and postdoctoral fellows are now prominent international scientific leaders or investigators in radiology, nuclear medicine, biomedical physics and biomathematics, and are making k
