IV.Brief Introduction of Chief lecturer:

Dr. Gao-Jun Teng, professor of radiology, and director of Zhong-da Hospital, SoutheastUniversity.

Dr. Teng has engaged in Radiology and Interventional Radiology since 1982. He was well educated as an interventional radiologist including a 3-year fellowship program of interventional radiology in Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center (USA). He has equipped with much experience both in clinical practice and teaching. He is good at interventional radiology and molecular imaging. Moreover, he has finished a lot of research projects. Currently he is doing several research projects as a principal investigator, which includes National Natural Science Research Foundation key projects. Dr. Teng has published over 60 papers and several books and chapters. He has been as a mentor for M.S. degree graduate student since 1997 and for Ph.D. degree graduate student since 2002.

He is a standing committeeman and director of Interventional Radiological Group of China Radiology Association, and the chief of Radiology Association of Medical Association of Jiangsu Province.
