Ming-Chieh Ding obtained his B.S. and MSE degrees from Johns Hopkins University, where he studied biomedical and electrical engineering. He then joined the Harvard-MIT Health Sciences and Technology program, where he continued to study biomedical engineering in the medical engineering and medical physics track and earned his Ph.D. His doctoral research focused on the electrophysiology of traumatic brain injury. Thereafter he obtained his M.D. from the Tufts University School of Medicine before joining the neurology residency program at Washington University in St. Louis. During residency, Ding solidified his interest in brain injury and stroke, and he subsequently returned to Boston to complete his vascular neurology fellowship at the Massachusetts General Hospital/Brigham and Women’s Hospital/Harvard Medical School fellowship program.
At Dell Medical School, Ding continues to work on basic science and translational research while also serving clinically as a vascular neurology attending physician. Stroke and brain injury are complex processes with cascades of secondary injury mechanisms. Ding’s lab focuses on understanding the mechanisms underlying the pathophysiology of neurological injury using optical imaging and electrophysiology, with the ultimate goal of developing novel methods for improving acute stroke intervention and recovery.
