Dr. Ho’s research focuses on non-invasive methods for vascular imaging, tissue characterization, functional assessment, image-guided therapy/drug delivery, and bioprinting.  The USU’s 4-Dimensional Bioprinting, Biofabrication, and Biomanufacturing Program (4D Bio3), a collaboration between USU, The Geneva Foundation, WRNMMC, and the Naval Research Laboratory, is one of his current research program. The 4D Bio3 focuses on promoting the development and application of advanced bioprinting, biofabrication, and biomanufacturing technologies.

The Geneva Foundation has provides military medical researchers with proposal development and award management services designed to secure funding and foster innovative research. It was founded in 1993 by Jane Taylor, a critical care nurse, to support and promote the advancement of military medicine and to service the research needs of Madigan Army Medical Center in Tacoma, WA. In 1992, Madigan Army Medical Center was one of only two hospitals in the world to hospital-wide picture archive and communications systems (PACS), and whose pioneering adoption of “filmless radiology” and research on its utilization significantly contributed to the implementation of PACS technology by hospitals worldwide.
