Presenter

Zhen Xu, PhD

Dr. Zhen Xu Associate Professor, Biomedical Engineering University of Michigan Dr. Xu's research group focuses on developing image-guided therapy for cardiovascular applications. Her lab has been developing non-invasive therapy methods to remove pathological blood clots, which are the key mechanism behind many cardiovascular diseases including stroke and deep vein thrombosis. This new method can locally destroy clot without any incision or catheter insertion, and has potential to greatly reduce the complications of current clot remove methods. Her lab is also working on non-invasive fetal therapy that may prevent certain congenital diseases from developing before birth.
