Dr. Jongho (John) Kim, MD, PhD, FACNM, aspiring clinician scientist, highly motivated by prior clinical training and research in the US as ‘awardee of RSNA Roentgen Resident Research Award, and NIH Ruth L. Kirschstein National Research Service Award (T32) Fellowship’ on clinical and translational positron emission tomography PET/CT/MRI to improve clinical care toward ‘precision medicine based on molecular imaging’ a new standard of practice.
Dynamic PET/CT/MR using tracer-kinetics is to investigate (cardiovascular) perfusion, (oncologic) metabolism and (neuro- and psychiatric) synaptic plasticity, with image big data using deep learning and artificial intelligence, as well as in vitro autoradiography of postmortem studies which prepared for FDA investigational new drug (IND) application and protocol as PI to validate a new imaging biomarker to accelerate the discovery of new therapeutics.
Perfusion, and metabolic as well as neuropsychiatric synaptic (or metabolic) plasticity, with image big data science using machine learning and artificial intelligence.
Neuroscience & Neuroimaging: Ko, Ji Hyun, PhD, Associate professor
Deep Learning & Artificial Intelligence: Cha, Young-Jin, PhD, Associate professor
Dr. Jongho (John) Kim, MD, PhD, FACNM, associate professor of radiology and nuclear medicine, University of Manitoba Positron Emission Tomography (PET) Center at Health Science Center, pursued prior clinical training and research in the US, awardee of RSNA Roentgen Resident Research Award, and NIH Ruth L. Kirschstein National Research Service Award (T32) Fellowship, the most recent at Columbia and Johns Hopkins university.
Dr. Kim graduated from Seoul National University Medical College, Korea with a MD (with scholarship of Korean Ministry of Patriots and Veterans Affairs) and received a Ph.D from Chonnam National University in Korea (with scholarship of National Graduate Medical School, PhD thesis of ‘Perfusion SPECT in Parkinson’s disease with thalamopallidotomy’ following MS ‘Partial sympathetic reinnervation in cardiac transplant’).
Dr. Kim’s research continued in the US using PET-based molecular imaging for precision medicine; Cardiovascular PET perfusion of myocardial blood flow, metabolism and viability as well as sympathetic/parasympathetic neuronal mapping for ablation of arrhythmia; Oncologic dynamic PET metabolic plasticity of early perfusion and late metabolism to assess treatment response as well as radiomics and radiogenomics using deep learning and artificial intelligence; Neuro- and Psychiatric PET synaptic (or metabolic) plasticity on prior NIH national research service award research at Johns Hopkins, for neuroreceptor mapping, interaction and homeostasis including dopaminergic, glutamatergic and cholinergic and cannabinergic neurotransmission as well as in-vitro autoradiography of postmortem studies, which is translated at New York state neurologic and psychiatric institute at Columbia University for Alzheimer’s disease, and Parkinson’s disease as well as psychiatric diseases such as depression and schizophrenia, for FDA investigational new drug (IND) application and protocol as PI to validate a new imaging biomarker to accelerate the discovery of new therapeutics.
