Dr. Qian received his Ph.D. (2007) from the University of California, Berkeley and B.S. (2002) from Nanjing University, China. His research focuses on the development of advanced detection technologies for Magnetic Resonance Imaging and for biosensors in general. These detection technologies are subsequently utilized to evaluate the efficacy of various therapeutic strategies for cardiovascular, kidney and neurodegenerative diseases.
