Dr. Mingzhou Ding was recently named one of thirty-four UF Research Foundation Professors for 2013-2016.
During a reception honoring all UFRF Professors, Vice President for Research David Norton presented Professor Ding with a plaque acknowledging this distinguished award.
This recognition goes to faculty who have a distinguished current record of research and a strong research agenda that is likely to lead to continuing distinction in their fields.
Professor Ding’s research is focused on understanding the neural basis of higher brain functions and their impairments by neurological and psychiatric disorders. He has pioneered the application of computational and statistical techniques to assess the directionality of neural interactions and information flow in brain networks. In particular, he and his lab are applying quantitative engineering approaches to multiple forms of imaging data for the brain (e.g., electroencephalogram, electrocorticogram, fMRI data) to address fundamental questions in the dynamic organization of brain networks and the disruption of these networks in disease.
Congratulations, Dr. Ding!
