Fang-Fang Yin, Ph. D.
Fang-Fang Yin, PhD, received his BS from Zhejiang University, Hangzhou, China in 1982. He
worked as an Instructor at University of Shanghai for Science and Technology between 1982-
1985. He then move to United States and obtained his MS in Physics from Bowling Green State
University 1987; PhD in Medical Imaging Physics from The University of Chicago in 1992; and
continued his Clinical Fellowship in Radiation Oncology, University of Rochester, Rochester,
NY. From 1993, he became a faculty of radiation oncology and biomedical engineering at
University Rochester. He joined Henry Ford Health System Radiation Oncology as the Head of
Physics Division from 1998 and was recruited to Radiation Oncology Department at Duke
University as a tenured Professor and Chief of Radiation Physics Division in 2004 overseeing
clinical physics operations and academic physics development at Duke University Hospital and
10 affiliated facilities. He also served as an Associate Director of Medical Physics Graduate
Program at Duke University and Director of Radiation Oncology Residency Program. He
implemented Medical Physics Graduate Program at Duke Kunshan University in China in 2014.
Dr. Yin’s clinical and research expertize covers wide areas in radiation oncology, including
oncological imaging and imaging analysis, image-guided radiation therapy, intensity-modulated
radiation therapy, stereotactic radiosurgery and stereotactic body radiation therapy, big data
analytics in radiation oncology, quality and safety optimization, treatment planning optimization,
organ motion management and treatment assessment. He is an active member of American
Association of Physicists in Medicine (AAPM), American Society of Radiology Oncology
(ASTRO), International Society of Radiosurgery (ISRS) and Radiosurgery Society (RSS). He
served board of directors for AAPM and ISRS and voluntarily served over 30 committee
activities and other roles within AAPM, ASTRO, ISRS, ACR and RSS, including writing groups
for developing task group reports related to clinical physics practices such as TG-142, TG-101,
TG-104, MPPG-9, etc. He served editorial board for Medical Physics, International Journal of
Radiation Oncology, Biology and Physics, Journal of Radiosurgery and SBRT. He published
over 250 referred papers and over 15 book chapters. He was funded and is funded by 20 research
grants from NIH, DOD, non-government agents, and industries.
Over the last 20 years, he taught radiation physics courses for MD residents and radiation physics
as well as image-guidance in SRS/SBRT for Medical Physics Graduate Students. Supervised
over 20 Post-doctoral Fellows, PhD and Master Degree students. He was the inventor and co-
inventor of 4 US patents.
Dr. Yin was one of the founders of NACMPA and served as secretary, treasurer, and president
since its formation in 1994. He is also one of the founders for SANTRO which combines both
physicists and physicians efforts to bridge the radiation oncology practices between US and
China. During the past 20 years, he served as visiting professors for a number of Universities and
Hospitals, co-organized many meetings, symposia, and workshops, and engaged many training
and educational activities in China.
