Biography

Dr. Leng's research focuses on stroke and intracranial atherosclerotic disease (ICAD). In the past few years, Dr. Leng has been utilizing multimodal neuroimaging and computational methods to study cerebral hemodynamics and plaque characteristics in ICAD and its clinical implications, using a cross-disciplinary approach. She also works on the efficacy and safety of medical and interventional treatment regimens in ischemic stroke, and investigates mechanisms of collateral circulation recruitment and its prognostic values in stroke patients. In these research areas, she has close collaboration with University of California Los Angeles, Beijing Tiantan Hospital of Capital Medical University, and Shenzhen Institutes of Advanced Technology of the Chinese Academy of Sciences. Dr. Leng has been funded by the Research Grants Council of Hong Kong and the National Natural Science Foundation of China. She was 1 of the 4 awardees of the Young (less than or equal to 34 years old) Elite Scientist Sponsorship Program 2017 under the Chinese Stroke Association, funded by the China Association for Science and Technology. She was also elected as 1 of the 24 emerging leaders in the 2018 World Heart Federation Emerging Leaders Programme. Since 2013, Dr. Leng has published more than 30 peer-reviewed articles in international academic journals, including Circulation, Neurology, J Neurol Neurosurg Psychiatry, Stroke, J Cereb Blood Flow Metab, Eur J Neurol, etc. In addition, Dr. Leng is a Member of World Stroke Organization, Junior Member of European Stroke Organisation, Early-Career Member of American Heart Association/American Stroke Association, and Member of Chinese Stroke Association.
