Dr. Heo received his doctoral (2013) degrees in biomedical engineering at the University of Iowa. As a postdoctoral fellow in the Department of Radiology at the Johns Hopkins University from 2013 to 2015, his research was to elucidate the contrast mechanism of Chemical Exchange Saturation Transfer and Amide Proton Transfer imaging. After completing a post-doc fellowship, Dr. Heo became a faculty research associate (2015-2016) and was promoted to Assistant Professor in the Department of Radiology at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine and Kennedy Krieger Institute in 2017.
Dr. Heo’s research focuses on developing, testing, and optimizing various novel CEST and APT imaging techniques to speed up translation into the clinic. Recent work focuses on the development of the novel MR fingerprinting (MRF)-based quantitative CEST imaging technology combined with deep learning-based tissue quantification.
