Scientific Focus

Current Research and Scholarly Interests

Dr. Yang's research focuses on comprehensive evaluation of myocardial injury and restoration using novel molecular and cellular MRI techniques. By combining the chemical sensitivity of nuclear magnetic resonance with high spatial and temporal resolution, integrated imaging of a wide range of regenerative processes in the cardiovascular system is possible. This innovative approach enables in vivo imaging of stem cell biology and their effects on the myocardium. The novel MRI techniques are employed to investigate a broad spectrum of cardiovascular stem cells derived from human pluripotent and adult stem cells. Dr. Yang's research has been supported by the National Institutes of Health, American Heart Association, California Institute of Regenerative Medicine, Stanford Cardiovascular Institute, and private organizations.
