Dr. King joined the National Institute of Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering (NIBIB) in 2016 as the Program Director for Ultrasound in the Division of Applied Science and Technology.  Most recently he was an Oak Ridge Institute for Science and Education (ORISE) fellow at the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, where he investigated the mechanisms of acoustic neurostimulation, as well as the quantification of temperature rise caused by ultrasound insonation. He has extensive experience with both therapeutic and diagnostic ultrasound and was a member of the research team to first perform clinical trials of magnetic resonance-guided focused ultrasound for the treatment of uterine fibroids.  Dr. King received a B.A. in Biology from the University of Kansas, an M.S. degree in Tumor Biology from Georgetown University, and a Ph.D. in Bioengineering from Stanford University.
