Adjunct Faculty (Involved in teaching or mentoring of Duke Kunshan University students)
Hongqi Zhang, PhD

Professor of Anatomy, Histology and Embryology, School of Basic Medical Sciences, Fudan University

Professor Zhang’s has been teaching anatomy and physiology for more than 30 years. His main research interests focus on cardiovascular remodeling and its mechanism. In recent years, research interest has shifted into the study of telocyte. By the method of electron microscope, telocytes were firstly found in the blood, bone marrow, arterial wall, venous wall and dura mater etc.
