Kengyeh K Chu Ph.D.

Research Fellow, Massachusetts General Hospital

Ken Chu received his Ph.D. in Biomedical Engineering in 2011 from Boston University, where he worked on developing new optical imaging techniques for biomedical research. Since 2012 he has been a Research Fellow in the lab of Dr. Gary Tearney at the Wellman Center for Medicine, a part of Massachusetts General Hospital and Harvard Medical School. Dr. Chu has been developing high resolution micro-OCT technology to capture living cilia and mucociliary transport. In collaboration with Dr. Steven Rowe at the University of Alabama at Birmingham, Dr. Chu and the Tearney Lab have been using micro-OCT to study the functional defect of CF in animal models and translating the imaging technology to in vivo clinical use.
