Chen Joins Faculty

Assistant Professor Yu
Assistant Professor Yu "Tim" Chen.

The Fischell Department of Bioengineering is pleased to welcome its newest faculty member, Assistant Professor Yu Chen, who will join us in November 2007. Chen received his Ph.D. in bioengineering from the University of Pennsylvania in 2001.

Before joining the Clark School, Chen was a postdoctoral fellow at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology’s Research Laboratory of Electronics, where he specialized in biomedical imaging techniques. His work included the development of ultrahigh resolution endoscopic optical coherence tomography (OCT) for imaging of biological tissues, full-field and line scanning optical coherence microscopy (OCM) for cellular level imaging, an image analysis algorithm based on principle component analysis (PCA) for computer aided diagnosis (CAD), and a miniaturized imaging endoscope/catheter for OCT including a 2D MEMS-based device. Working in collaboration with doctors from the Harvard Medical School, Boston VA Medical Center, Massachusetts General Hospital, and the Georgetown University School of Medicine, he also participated in clinical studies and investigations for early cancer detection in the gastrointestinal tract and non-invasive imaging of the kidneys and brain using OCT.
