Mohammad Mehrmohammadi


Mohammad Mehrmohammadi is an assistant professor of Biomedical Engineering at Wayne State University. He received his B.Sc. degree in Electrical Engineering from Sharif University of Technology (Tehran, Iran), the M.Sc. in Electrical and Computer Engineering from Illinois Institute of Technology (Chicago, IL), and the Ph.D. in Biomedical Engineering from the University of Texas at Austin (Austin, TX). His doctoral research at Ultrasound Imaging and Therapeutics Laboratory at UT Austin was focused on design and development of novel ultrasound-based molecular imaging. Prior to joining WSU, Mohammad worked at Mayo Clinic College of Medicine (Rochester, Minnesota) as a Senior Research Fellow where his research was mostly focused on development and clinical evaluation of various ultrasound-based tissue elastography methods for applications such as bladder poor compliance diagnosis, and thyroid and breast cancer. Mohammad is the recipient a number of awards such as Newport research excellence award (SPIE 2010), IEEE student travel award (IUS 2010), IEEE best paper award finalist (IEEE IUS 2011), and a travel award from Center for Nano & Molecular Science & Technology at UT Austin. Mohammad is a member of editorial board for a number of well-known journals including Ultrasound in Medicine and Biology, Austin Journal of Biomedical Engineering, Journal of Biomedical Engineering research, and SM Journal of Engineering Science. He also serves a technical committee member for Acoustical Society of America (ASA) and SPIE Medical Imaging conferences. Mohammad serves as a reviewer for a number of journals and conferences including: IEEE TUFFC, IEEE TMI, Laser Physics Letters, Medical Physics, Nanotechnology, Optics Express, Optics Letters, ASME, Ultrasonic Imaging, Nanotechnology, Photoacoustic, Ultrasonics, Ultrasound in Medicine and Biology, and Cancer Letters. He is a member of institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE, UFFC and EMBS society), International Society for Optical Engineering (SPIE), World Molecular Imaging Society (WMIS), American Association for Cancer Research (AACR) and Sigma Xi.
