Dr. Bin Deng is a biomedical scientist whose research interests revolve around near-infrared (NIR) spectroscopy, functional optical imaging, the interactions between NIR light and tissue, noninvasive optical biomarkers, and the pathophysiology of diseases. Dr. Deng investigates the intersection of physics, engineering, and medicine to seek novel NIR spectroscopic and imaging technologies to address unmet clinical needs. Over the past five years, her research has focused on translating multimodal diffuse optical tomography (DOT) technology for the early assessment and therapy monitoring of breast cancer. Using a combination of technology development, theoretical modeling, and clinical studies in her research, Dr. Deng searches for the answers to critical questions, such as whether, when, and how clinical interventions should be introduced in the management of breast cancer.
Dr. Deng earned her Ph.D. in Bioengineering from Syracuse University, and Master's and Bachelor's degrees from Tianjin University in China. She joined the Athinoula A. Martinos Center for Biomedical Imaging at Massachusetts General Hospital in 2013, and currently is an Instructor in Radiology at the Harvard Medical School and Research Staff at MGH.
