    Wei Bian

    Postdoctoral Research fellow, Radiology

    Bio Dr. Wei Bian received his PhD from the UC Berkeley and UCSF graduate program in Bioengineering. His Ph.D. focused on using magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) to investigate tissue susceptibility in the human brain. Using MR phase and susceptibility-weighted imaging (SWI), he studied iron-induced susceptibility contrast in multiple sclerosis lesions and cerebral microbleeds. To define the spatial relationship between microbleeds and blood vessels, he implemented a multi-echo MRI sequence to acquire images from arteries, veins and microbleeds simultaneously. He also designed a algorithm to quickly and accurately identify microbleeds automatically. Now at Stanford, Wei is a postdoctoral fellow in the Richard M. Lucas Center for Imaging. He is focusing on studying inflammation in multiple sclerosis using quantitative susceptibility mapping (QSM) and effective relaxation rate (R2*) mapping with ultra-high resolution 7T MRI. His methods will expand into other disease such as Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Alzheimer's disease, and Traumatic Brain Injury. He is also working on sequence development for faster and more effective acquisitions for QSM as well as quantitative imaging (volumetric analysis and DTI).

    Pu Chen

    Postdoctoral Research fellow, Radiology

    Bio Dr. Pu Chen is a Postdoctoral Scholar at Canary Center for Cancer Early Detection, Department of Radiology, Stanford University School of Medicine, Palo Alto, CA, USA. Before moving to Stanford, he was a Postdoctoral Research Fellow in Medicine at Harvard Medical School (HMS), and Brigham and Women?s Hospital, Boston, MA. He received his Ph.D. from Huazhong University of Science and Technology, Wuhan, China in 2011. His current research interests are in the field of microscale technologies for bottom-up tissue engineering and bioanalysis. He has published more than 20 peer-reviewed publications, and two book chapters.
    Dr. Pu Chen specializes in creating microscale technologies to solve real-world problems in biomedicine. He has created new technologies for 3D tissue mimics for tissue engineering and microfluidic technologies for bioanalysis. Through his career, he has obtained training in a number of disciplines that are of direct importance for leading projects with experience in a variety of engineering and biomedical disciplines, including optics, electrical engineering, acoustics, microfabrication, microfluidics, microscale assembly, fluorescence detection systems, analytical chemistry and tissue engineering. Dr. Pu Chen believes scientific research is an endless trek toward truths of the universe that can benefit human beings in both material life and spiritual life. His goal is to promote welfare of every ordinary person by developing novel solutions to address complex global health problems and helping people to fight with diseases.
