Research Interests

Dr. Chen’s research interest is in ultrasonic transducers, imaging-guided focused ultrasound systems, focused ultrasound for tumor therapy, and ultrasonic neuromodulation.

Research Activities & Accomplishment

The strategy of Dr. Chen’s laboratory is to use the ultrasonic technology to create novel treatment modalities and devices for clinical diseases. The ultimate goal is to provide surgeons or clinicians a new tool to treat diseases which can’t be treated with current operations or to improve the efficacy of the treatment or to lower the surgical risk.
