Dr. Streeter is a clinical assistant professor in Engineering with a specialization in the field of computer engineering.  Dr. Streeter graduated in 2013 with a Ph.D. in Biomedical Engineering from the joint department of biomedical engineering at The University of North Carolina and North Carolina State. Prior to obtaining his Ph.D., Dr. Streeter worked for Motorola (Freescale Semiconductor) in 
the field of semiconductors as an applications engineer, a software engineer and a product engineering manager. For the last 3 years, he has worked at Worthington Biochemical as a quality engineer and systems software developer.

Research Interests

Traditional ultrasound focuses on imaging anatomical features while ultrasonic molecular imaging is a functional technique designed to evaluate cellular and molecular activity in biological systems. Jason Streeter’s research interests include developing ultrasonic molecular imaging techniques and image processing software to evaluate the effects of novel pharmaceuticals on various forms of cancer.
