Yulin Song, PhD


I received a bachelor’s degree in laser physics from Beijing (Peking) University in China and a master’s degree in accelerator physics from Sam Houston State University in Texas. With support from a U.S. Department of Defense Breast Cancer Research Predoctoral fellowship, I obtained a second master’s degree and a doctorate in biomedical engineering from the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center at Dallas, specializing in magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). My doctoral research focused on measuring breast cancer oximetry (oxygen saturation) using fMRI. Subsequently, I completed a postdoctoral research fellowship in the Department of Radiation Oncology at Stanford University School of Medicine. My research focused on modulated electron radiation therapy in breast cancer treatment.

My current research interests are broad and interdisciplinary, including medical imaging, medical instrumentation, modern radiation oncology, and diagnostic radiology. I welcome researchers and students to contact me for possible research collaborations and thesis and dissertation projects.
