Dr. DeYoe is a tenured Professor in the Department of Radiology at the Medical College of Wisconsin and is an Adjunct Professor in the Department of Bioengineering, at Marquette University. He trained as a neuroscientist and electrical engineer with dual PhD’s in neuroscience and experimental psychology from the University of Rochester and an undergraduate degree in electrical engineering from Lehigh University. His postdoctoral training was at the California Institute of Technology. He has extensive experience in visual neurophysiology, neuroanatomy and functional neuroimaging and has a research program funded by the National Institutes of Health. He has served on grant review panels at NIH and on the review boards of a variety of scientific journals. He is currently a member of the board of trustees of Prism Clinical Imaging Inc. and is a holder of several US patents or pending patents in the field of image-guided diagnosis and treatment of brain cancer and other pathologies.
