Chengcheng Zhu

  • Adjunct Professor
  • Assistant Professor, Department of Radiology, School of Medicine


Dr. Zhu’s research focuses on the development of advanced vascular imaging techniques across a variety of vascular beds, including femoral artery plaque, abdominal aorta aneurysm, carotid plaque and intracranial artery plaque and aneurysms. He also applied these techniques in patients to explore the clinical relevance of the novel morphological and molecular imaging markers of the vessel wall, and validated these imaging findings with histopathology and clinical outcome.

His research in vascular imaging has been recognized internationally. He is a receipt of NIH career development award (K99/R00) and a R01 grant, and a Junior Fellow of ISMRM. He has been invited to give lectures in vascular imaging in universities, academic centers, and conferences internationally. He has published 94 peer-reviewed journal articles, and 55 of them are first- or senior-authored. His articles appear on Circulation, Radiology, Stroke, JACC Cardiovascular Imaging, Journal of Cardiovascular Magnetic Resonance (JCMR), Journal of Neurointerventional Surgery (JNIS) etc. He is on the editorial board of American Journal of Neuroradiology (AJNR) and he is an Associate Editor of Frontiers in Neuroscience and Frontiers of Neurology. He is a reviewer for Radiology, Stroke, and another 40 journals. He serves as a grant reviewer for several government funding agencies, including Canadian Foundation of Innovation, NIH (EITA study section) and the Swiss National Science Foundation.”
