Personal profile

Personal Statement

Lian obtained his PhD in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Colorado at Boulder in 2010. He then took his first postdoctoral training in Biomedical Engineering at the University of Wisconsin-Madison in USA and his second postdoctoral training in cardiovascular biology in the Department of Medicine at Queen's University in Canada. He Joined SIPBS in 2020. His research interests focus on cardiovascular physiology, biomechanics, biology and modeling, particularly in pulmonary hypertension. The goal is to understand the mechanism at molecular, cellular, tissue and organ levels for disease diagnosis, monitoring and therapeutic treatment. His group has recently focused on right ventricular fibrosis and function in pulmonary arterial hypertension.

PhD and postdoctoral positions are available to work on the following projects:

1. Sex-dependent mitochondrial function in the right ventricle in pulmonary arterial hypertension

2. Right ventricular ischemia and function in pulmonary arterial hypertension

3. Cardiovascular physiology, biomechanics and modeling

Applicants who are interested in cardiovascular physiology and biology are encouraged to contact Dr. Lian Tian.
