Yuchi Han, MD, MMSc
Assistant Professor of Medicine, Cardiovascular Division, University of Pennsylvania
Dr. Han's major interests are to use imaging tools such as echocardiography and cardiac MRI to understand cardiac physiology/pathophysiology and to characterize the myocardium in different disease states. Our current major areas of work include right ventricular function, real-time imaging, and valvular heart disease.
Walter RT Witschey, PhD
Assistant Professor, Department of Radiology
Dr. Witschey's interests are the study of heart disease with an emphasis on the development of novel magnetic resonance imaging methods for assessing myocardial function and energetics. The focus of this work is molecular imaging with T1rho MRI and the determination ventricular elastic properties in heart disease, emphasizing the development of new non-Cartesian acquisitions and innovative MR reconstructions.

Dr. Wang is an echocardiographer from PLA Hospital in Beijing, China. She is spending the year learning cardiac MRI and is doing research on tissue mapping.
Jacob recruits and manages a number of human studies for Dr. Han.

Francisco is currently a Ph.D. candidate in Bioengineering at the University of Pennsylvania. Francisco's research interest involves understanding cardiac function and dysfunction through the use of non-invasive imaging. His current research focus is directed towards development of advanced MRI techniques for real-time MRI imaging. Francisco is also interested in MRI's ability to detect physiologic/functional changes in addition to structure and size.
Postdoc at UCLA (2016)
