Professor Chen’s research focuses on medical ultrasound. Her goal is to develop the ultrasound-based image-guided drug delivery platform for cancer therapy through combining the functions of ultrasound, integrating physical acoustics with the development of medical ultrasound devices and bridging basic and translational research. She has obtained significant training and made scientific contributions in physical acoustics, therapeutic ultrasound, and ultrasound imaging. She received the RWB Stephen’s prize at the World Congress in Ultrasonics/Ultrasonics International in 2005. She also earned the Young Investigator Award at the 2014 Focused Ultrasound International Symposium in recognition of her “outstanding research in the field of focused ultrasound”.
