Dr Hui, Sai Kam 許世鑫
Dr. Edward Sai Kam Hui’s ultimate research goal is to better MRI as a diagnostic tool to triage disease. He has devoted his research to developing novel surrogate biomarkers in human and preclinical neurological disorders using advanced MRI techniques, with strong emphasis on diffusion MRI. His current research focus pertains to improving the diagnostic value of MRI for stroke and cancer imaging.
Dr. Hui was born in Hong Kong in 1983. He received his B.Eng. degree in Biomedical Engineering and Ph.D. degree in Biomedical Engineering from the University of Hong Kong in 2005 and 2009, respectively. He completed his postdoctoral trainings under Profs. King C. Li, Timothy Q. Duong and Joseph A. Helpern from three different laboratories in the United States in 2012.
Dr. Hui later became Research Assistant Professor in late 2012 at the Medical University of South Carolina under the mentorship of Profs. Joseph A. Helpern and Jens H. Jensen, where his main research focus was concerned with improving the characterization of brain with ischemic infarction using diffusional kurtosis imaging, and the technical development thereof. He was a co-Investigator of researches funded by the National Institute of Health, Dana Foundation and the South Carolina Clinical and Translational Research Institute. He returned to Hong Kong and joined the Department of Diagnostic Radiology as a Research Assistant Professor in late 2013.
