Michael F. Insana (Life Fellow, IEEE) received the Ph.D. degree in medical physics from the University of Wisconsin–Madison, Madison, WI, USA, in 1983.,He was the Head of the Department of Bioengineering, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, Champaign, IL, USA, from 2008 to 2013 and again from 2017 to 2019. His research involves medical ultrasonic imaging applied to the diagnosis of cancer and peripheral artery disease. He develops instrumentation and methods for imaging soft tissue microstructure, viscoelasticity, and blood flow. He develops task-based optimization methods for designing and evaluating sonographic systems. He has also developed novel methods for characterizing large-scale networks and other nonlinear systems. He is currently Donald Biggar Willett Prof in Engineering and a Faculty Member in the Bioengineering Department and ECE at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.,Dr. Insana is a fellow of the Acoustical Society of America, Institute of Physics, and American Institute of Medical and Biological Engineering. He was an Editor-in-Chief of the IEEE Transactions on Medical Imaging from 2015 to 2020.
