Lei Chen MD, PhD, works in the Physiology, Spinal Cord and Brain Injury Research Center, University of Kentucky. During 5 years of clinical practice in Neurology and over 20 years of basic research in neuroscience, he has developed a wide spectrum of expertise and skills in the field of stroke, brain trauma, and other chronic neurological diseases. His experience includes promotion of brain function restoration through neural stem cells therapy, examination of post-injury neurogenesis and angiogenesis, study of blood-brain barrier function and disruption, regulation of cerebrovascular tone, and investigation of neuronal stress and degeneration in Alzheimer’s disease. Moreover, through collaboration with a Bioengineering team, we have developed and optimized several novel noninvasive brain functional and hemodynamic imaging systems that can evaluate the brain activities under relaxing or stressed conditions with minimal interference of animals’ normal behavior. Some of these techniques are in the process of translation into clinical applications.
