The Department was pleased to welcome Clinical Assistant Professor Fangbai Wu, MD, in May 2019 as the newest faculty member to join its Musculoskeletal Imaging division. Dr. Wu joins this team under the direction of Division Chief Dr. Daniel Nissman.

Before arriving at UNC, Dr. Wu served as both an Assistant Professor of Radiology at Columbia University Medical Center and a Staff Radiologist at New York Presbyterian Hospital (New York, NY) for two years (July 2017-May 2019). Her educational and training background includes obtaining her medical degree (June 2011) and completing her Internal Medicine internship (June 2012) at East Tennessee State University College of Medicine (Johnson City, TN).  Dr. Wu completed her diagnostic radiology residency (2012-2016) as well as her Musculoskeletal Imaging fellowship (2016-2017) at the Cleveland Clinic Foundation (Cleveland, OH).

Wu stated: “Both in the reading room and non-clinical duty didactics, I enjoy teaching and mentoring residents. I felt privileged to be able to share my knowledge and passion for musculoskeletal radiology with residents and medical students at Columbia University, and I look forward to doing the same here at UNC-Chapel Hill.  In Musculoskeletal Imaging research, my area of focus is musculoskeletal tumor imaging, as well as sports medicine imaging.”

 

The Department was pleased to welcome Tyler Jobe, MS, to the Clinical Research Division as a Clinical Research Assistant in June 2019. Tyler is one of four Clinical Research Assistants in a division overseen by Associate Director for Clinical Research Operations Terry Hartman. As part of a team that supports clinical and translational Department faculty researchers, Tyler will be working in patient recruitment, database building (REDCap), and data entry.

Prior arriving at UNC, Mr. Jobe worked at East Carolina University as a graduate research assistant and teaching assistant in Physics in Greenville, NC.  Mr. Jobe received his BS in Engineering Science and Physics from Vanderbilt University in 2013, and went on to receive his MS in Medical Physics from East Carolina University in 2015.  He now aims to bring knowledge of medical imaging and experience in research data management to the research efforts of the radiology department.

 

The Department was pleased to welcome Hannah Mignosa to the Clinical Research Division as a Clinical Research Assistant in June 2019. Hannah is one of four Clinical Research Assistants in a division overseen by Associate Director for Clinical Research Operations Terry Hartman. As part of a team that supports clinical and translational Department faculty researchers, she works in patient recruitment, a database-building (REDCap) and data entry.

Hannah received her BS in Public Health from the University of North Carolina at Wilmington in 2018.  Prior to joining the Department of Radiology, she worked with PHE, Inc. (Hillsborough, NC) and was an intern with Northwest Pediatrics (Greensboro, NC). For two years as an undergraduate, Hannah gained microbiology lab experience conducting independent antibiotic discovery research.

Hannah notes: “I foresee this position relating to my educational background by clinical research being a prominent part of the public health field. Without research, there would be minimal advancement in patient wellness and care. Gaining new knowledge is critical to creating a thriving, healthy community, and I’m all for that!”

 

The Department was pleased to welcome Erin Moore in February 2019 as its new UME/GME Student Services Support Specialist. In this role, Erin supports Graduate Medical Education Coordinator Krista Sills, all departmental Course Directors for RADY UNC School of Medicine electives, and the Diagnostic Radiology residency program as a whole.

Erin has previously worked for the Department of Radiology as a faculty assistant. Prior to rejoining the Department, she worked in 2018 as a faculty administrative assistant at UNC’s School of Law and administratively at a local ophthalmology office. 

Erin noted: “I am so grateful to be back here in the Department of Radiology at the School of Medicine. The people I work with are irreplaceable, and I know that I can always count on them if I need a helping hand. This position has been so rewarding for me because of the challenges and the things I continue to learn along the way; I feel myself growing both in skills and as a person already in my short time here. I hope to have many, many years here to continue to grow with the Radiology family!”
