Prof. Yasser Kadah received his B.Sc. and M.Sc. degrees from the Biomedical Engineering Department at Cairo University in 1989 and 1992 respectively. He received his Ph.D. in Biomedical Engineering from the University of Minnesota in 1997. He worked as a research assistant with the Department of Radiology, University of Minnesota Medical School in 1996-1997 and as a post-doctoral fellow at the Center of Magnetic Resonance Research at the University of Minnesota in 1998. He became an Assistant Professor of Biomedical Engineering at Cairo University from 1998 to 2003. He also worked during the same period as the director of research and development at IBE technologies, Egypt. He also was a Research Associate with the Biomedical Imaging Technology Center at the Biomedical Engineering Department, Emory University and Georgia Institute of Technology, from December 2002 till July 2004. He is currently a Professor of Biomedical Engineering at Cairo University and the Department Chair. Among his outstanding achievements was leading the research and development team that developed the know-how technology and manufactured the first Egyptian and Arab ultrasound imaging system that was introduced to the market in 2000. He was the principal scientist in the development of its second generation in 2004 and is currently the principal investigator working on the third generation of this ultrasound system under two government grants awarded to Cairo University. Along his career, he received several awards and recognitions including the record for highest undergraduate GPA in the department of Biomedical Engineering at Cairo University, the Islamic Development Bank Merit Scholarship (1993-1996), his biography was selected to appear in Marquis Who’s Who in the World in 2002, winning the E.K. Zaviosky stipend from the international society of magnetic resonance in imaging in 2002, awarded the 2005 National Encouragement Award from the Academy of Scientific Research and Technology, Ministry of Higher Education and Research, Egypt, as well as the Award for Best Professor in Biomedical Engineering from the Cairo University Faculty Club in 2007. He was also selected to receive the 2008 Scientific Distinction Award from Cairo Universityt. He is a Senior Member of the Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers (IEEE) since 2003. He is currently an active member of the International Society of Magnetic Resonance in Medicine (ISMRM), the International Society of Optical Engineering (SPIE), the American Institute of Ultrasound in Medicine (AIUM) and the Association for the Advancement of Medical Instrumentation (AAMI). His research interests include medical imaging and in particular MRI and ultrasound imaging, and multi-dimensional signal processing for biomedical applications.
