Professor of Radiology and the Paul C. Lauterbur Chair in Imaging Research, Dr. Seong-Gi Kim, PhD joined the University of Pittsburgh faculty in 2002. Dr. Kim holds a PhD in Physical Chemistry from Washington University, St. Louis, Mo and a BS in Applied Chemistry/Mechanical Engineering from Kyungpook National University, Korea. Following the receipt of his doctoral degree, Dr. Kim did postgraduate work at Washington University as well as the University of Washington in Seattle, Wash.

Dr. Kim was previously associated with the Department of Neurobiology at the University of Pittsburgh and had also held positions at the University of Minnesota which included assistant, associate and full professor in Radiology and the Center for Magnetic Resonance Research.

Dr. Kim's Neuroimaging Laboratory located at the McGowan Institute in Regenerative Medicine equips a 9.4 Tesla MR System, a two-photon laser scanning microscope, and various neurophysiological measurement tools. The primary research focus of the lab is to develop and understand the in vivo imaging techniques which provide information on function, physiology, and anatomy, and to determine the relationship between neural activity and hemodynamic responses.
