Zhongzhao Teng, PhD, is Senior Research Associate at Department of Radiology, University of Cambridge. He received his BSc and PhD from the Department of Mechanics and Engineering Science, Fudan University, China, in 1998 and 2003, respectively. After the graduation, he joined the Department of Mechanical Engineering, University of Zaragoza, Spain, as a Juan de la Cierva Research Fellow and further moved to Worcester Polytechnic Institute, MA, USA, to be a Research Assistant Professor in 2007. In 2009, Dr. Teng joined the Department of Radiology, University of Cambridge and now he is a Senior Research Associate leading the Theme of Cardiovascular Imaging Research. In 2014, he completed his 2nd doctoral training at Department of Radiology from University of Cambridge. Dr Teng is mainly interested in the translational application of combination of non/mini-invasive medical imaging, such as magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), CTA, intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) and optical coherence tomography (OCT) and biomechanical analysis in assessing the vulnerability of atherosclerotic and aneurysmal lesions. The methodology includes radiomics and mechanomics. Dr Teng is also interested the material behaviour of atherosclerotic and aneurysmal tissues.

Dr Teng’s long-term research plan is focusing on

The translational application of combination of in vivo medical imaging and mechanical analysis to assess the vulnerability of atherosclerotic lesions; and The mechanism of initiation and progression of atherosclerotic lesions due to “malfunctioning” haemodynamics. Multidisciplinary collaborations between clinicians and non-clinicians have been developed for this long-term aim.


Current Research

Fluid-structure interaction simulation with diseased artery; Mechanism of atherosclerotic plaque progression and rupture; Material behaviour of biological tissue.
