Yutong Liu obtained his bachelor of engineering in the Capital Medical University in Beijing, China and his Ph.D. in biomedical engineering at the University of Iowa in 2002. He had his postdoctoral training in the Martinos Center for Biomedical Imaging in Massachusetts General Hospital. In 2006 he joined the faculty of the Radiology Department at the University of Nebraska Medical Center (UNMC). In UNMC, he developed MRI and image analysis methods and applied these methods to study neurodegenerative diseases in animal models. Besides teaching graduate and professional courses, he also mentor graduate students as a primary or a secondary supervisor. He served as a reviewer for several premier journals.
Yutong Liu primary research interest is to develop MRI methods and image analysis techniques for neuroscience research, especially for neurodegenerative diseases. He has employed advanced MRI methods including diffusion tensor imaging and perfusion-weighted imaging to study the evolution of ischemic brain injury in a model of stroke using nonhuman primates (macaques). Rest state functional MRI was also employed in this study to predict reversible and nonreversible brain damage after ischemia. In UNMC, he developed manganese enhanced MRI methods to study HIV-1 associated neurocognitive disorders (HAND) in murine models. Several image analysis techniques including mouse brain extraction and in vivo brain MRI to histology coregistration were developed for this study. His immediate research projects include the development of multi-spectral MRI techniques for the diagnosis of HAND and the development of functional MRI techniques to evaluate the therapeutic methods for HAND.
