Dr. Hongyu An is an Associate Professor in the Department of Radiology at Washington University School of Medicine. Dr. An is currently working on a project to develop rapid, robust, accurate and non-invasive cerebral oxygenation measurements using MRI. She is also studying the effects of HIV infection and antiretroviral therapy on cerebral autoregulation. She is working with Dr. Zheng on a project to develop non-invasive MR imaging methods to quantify skeletal muscle oxygen uptake and efficiency in diabetic leg and foot. She is Co-Investigator on Dr. Ford’s project studying the use of cerebral blood flow and oxygen extraction fraction as indicators of hemodynamic and metabolic stress, to stratify Stroke risk in Childhood Sickle Cell Disease.
