Professor & INP Director


Mai-Lan Ho, MD, is an accomplished neuroradiology physician-scientist and leader specializing in the full scope of advanced imaging. Dr. Ho has clinical expertise in advanced neuroimaging techniques and genotype-phenotype correlation in complex diseases. Her research focus involves radiologic technology development, quantitative image analysis and imaging genomics. Dr. Ho also leads multiple national and international initiatives for data science and precision health and serves on national/international society committees and editorial boards dedicated to advanced imaging and AI.

Dr. Ho’s research program involves the three key focus areas of translational advanced imaging, imaging genomics and artificial intelligence, improving imaging technology, implementation and integration by using clinical and basic sciences. Her independent and collaborative publications/grants apply expertise in medical physics, computer vision and data science for added value in clinical practice. As PI/co-I on several federal, foundation, and industry awards, Dr. Ho has built integrated teams of imaging physicists, referring physicians, radiologists and data scientists to accelerate bench-to-bedside translation.

In her leadership roles, Dr. Ho has created funded infrastructure for imaging investigators supporting task-based and resting-state functional MRI, advanced diffusion, perfusion, elastography, fingerprinting, spectroscopy, vessel wall imaging, ultrashort-echo time, 3D visualization and printing, and machine and deep learning. Actively promoting team science, overseeing innovative curricula and providing academic mentorship to faculty and trainees in various disciplines are core to her scientific principles.
