Professional Summary

William Ball, MD, Vice President for Research, Interim Vice President for Health Affairs and Dean College of Medicine is also professor of radiology, biomedical engineering and pediatrics and former Chair of the department of Biomedical Engineering from 2001 to 2008. He holds emeritus status as a neuroradiologist at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center. Ball received his undergraduate degree in biochemistry from Louisiana State University and his medical degree from Tulane University School of Medicine. He completed a fellowship in pediatric radiology/pediatric neuroradiology at Cincinnati Children’s and one year training in adult neuroradiology at the University of New Mexico Medical Center before joining UC and Cincinnati Children’s in 1984. He is board certified in both pediatrics and radiology. In 1993, Ball developed and created the Imaging Research Center at Cincinnati Children’s and served as its director from 1993 to 2002. Ball has conducted extensive research on pediatric neuro-imaging and has contributed to nearly 140 peer-reviewed manuscripts and 13 book chapters. While at UC, Ball has chaired or co-chaired a number of initiatives, including the Bioinformatics Taskforce, the Civic Engagement Council, the Initiatives subcommittee of the Academic Priorities Taskforce and the Research in Radiology Taskforce. He serves on the Executive Committee for the Clinical and Translational Science Award through the Center for Clinical and Translational Science and Training, and is a member of the President's Cabimet and Executive Committee. He recently led and implemented the universities research strategic plan as part of the President's Third Centruy Initiative.
