Expertise: Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), in vivo magnetic resonance spectroscopy (MRS), high-field magnetic resonance technology, brain metabolism, neuroenergetics
Dr. Chen is a Professor in the Departments of Radiology and Biomedical Engineering at the University of Minnesota. He received his B.S. degree from Fudan University and his PhD degree from Washington University in St. Louis. He got his postdoctoral training at Yale University, then joined the Center for Magnetic Resonance Research (CMRR) at the University of Minnesota in 1994 and became a full professor in 2002. His lab is one of leading research groups in developments of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and spectroscopy (MRS) methodologies and applications of those advanced techniques for noninvasively studying brain and heart metabolism, bioenergetics and function. He has served as a PI for many NIH RO1 grants including past and active grants. Dr. Chen has published over 100 peer-reviewed papers in leading scientific journals and numerous conference proceedings. He has delivered many invited talks in other universities and international conferences.
