Dr. Feng-Yi Yang Received the 9th National Innovation Award of Institute for Biotechnology and Medicine Industry

Dr. Feng-Yi Yang at the Department of Biomedical Imaging and Radiological Sciences of our school received the 9th National Innovation Award in the Academic Research Category by Institute for Biotechnology and Medicine Industry for his "Ultrasound target drug delivery system".

Dr. Yang's group demonstrated that ligand-conjugated liposomal technology assisted by pulsed focused ultrasound is able to concentrate high-dose chemotherapeutic drugs into brain tumors and improve their antitumor effects. The integration of targeted nano-anticancer drugs and ultrasound targeted drug delivery system may open a window for achieving enhanced local drug delivery and treatment efficacy with minimal side effects in the chemotherapy of high-grade gliomas and other brain diseases. Furthermore, integrated pulsed-HIFU and ultrasound imaging may be a useful tool for a real-time image-guided drug delivery system. Monitoring of the changes of peak systolic velocity (PSV) or pulsatility index (PI) might be useful as an online method to ensure the position of the sonicated site and to indicate when drug delivery occurs.

Dr. Yang will be focused on the diseases therapy and bio-effects by image-guided ultrasound targeted drug delivery system in the future research.

Dr. Yang received the 9th National Innovation Award.
