Biography :

Dr. Christine B. Chung is a Professor-In-Residence of Radiology at UCSD in the Musculoskeletal Division. She is a clinical translational researcher and the director of the UCSD Musculoskeletal Imaging Research Group, located at 3T MR Laboratory on the Hillcrest campus. Dr. Chung is currently a charter member of the SBSR NIH study section.

Dr. Chung is a world-renowned educator and has been invited to lecture around the world. She has received numerous awards for excellence in teaching, both within her own institution, as well as at national and international meetings, such as the ISMRM. She has delivered the Steinbach lecture at UCSF and has been invited to deliver the Freiberger lecture at HSS in 2012. She has served a term on the AMPC of the ISMRM. She has been an examiner at the ABR and currently serves on the EOF committee for the ABR.

Dr. Chung’s research interest lies in the application of novel MR pulse sequences for the characterization of musculoskeletal tissues. She and her laboratory group have done extensive work in the evaluation of short and ultrashort T2 tissues in the musculoskeletal system. This includes, among other things, articular cartilage, the TMJ, knee meniscus and cortical bone. The group is focusing on qMRI biomarkers that may serve as non-invasive references to biochemical integrity and function of the tissue.
