Research  Interest

Cardiovascular MR

  • Concentration:  application of non-invasive imaging, in particular cardiac MRI with a focus on cardiomyopathy. The long-term goal is to use cardiac MRI to differentiate cardiomyopathies and early detection of cardiac impairment.

Stem Cell Therapy

  • Concentration: using stem cell, especially mesenchymal stem cell, to alleviate cardiac remodeling.


  • Concentration: patients with heart disease could present various degree of anxiety and depression as well as somatic syndrome, affecting the quality of life. Therefore, it is important to screen the patients with somatic symptoms and provide a rational treatment.
