Honoring Lihong Wang, Washington University in St. Louis

Submitted by Junjie Yao, Duke University

Lihong’s mentoring over the last eight years absolutely tops the list of factors that have helped me to transit from a student knowing zero about photoacoustic imaging into a professional with my own lab. My enthusiasm for science, inspired by Lihong, has been the best medicine to overcome the desperation in the face of research problems and to be open-minded to new and even crazy ideas. He will always be the best example for my career development.
