Ed X Wu 吳學奎教授

  • Senior Research Fellowship in 2012 at University of Hong Kong

Professor Wu has made seminal contributions to in vivo nuclear magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) methods and their preclinical and clinical applications. They include the MRI system instrumentation, characterization of neural and heart tissues by imaging diffusion characteristics of water and other molecules, high-resolution investigation of capillary vasculature in brain and heart, development of molecular and cellular imaging methods, tissue iron overload characterization, and functional MRI methods for visual and auditory neuroscience. 

Professor Wu is Lam Woo Chair Professor in Biomedical Engineering, Associate Dean of Engineering, and the founding Director of the Laboratory of Biomedical Imaging and Signal Processing (7T MRI lab) at University of Hong Kong. He is the Asia-Pacific Editor of NMR in Biomedicine. Professor Wu is an elected Fellow of International Society for Magnetic Resonance in Medicine (ISMRM), Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers (IEEE), American Institute for Medical and Biological Engineering (AIMBE) in US, Institute of Engineering Technology (IET) in UK, and Hong Kong Institute of Engineers (HKIE).


Professor Wu's current research includes biomedical imaging and medical instrumentation, particularly the development of advanced high-field MRI methodologies and their applications for investigation of humans and disease models, including in vivo brain and heart structures and functions in normal, diseased, and pharmacologically and genetically modified conditions.
