Personal profile


Dr Sai Kam Hui’s ultimate research goals are to develop techniques to map the human brain, and 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 filling the critical knowledge in the link between the static anatomical connections and the dynamic functional connections across the brain in the hope of elucidating the neurophysiological mechanisms underlying cognition and stroke recovery; and to improving the diagnostic value of MRI for stroke and cancer imaging.

He received his Bachelor’s degree in medical engineering (2005) and Doctor of Philosophy’s degree in electrical and electronic engineering (2009) from The University of Hong Kong.

He received his postdoctoral training in MRI from three different institutes in the United States, namely the Methodist Hospital at Houston (2009), The University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio (2010), and the Medical University of South Carolina (2011). He was appointed as Research Assistant Professor at The Center for Biomedical Imaging, Medical University of South Carolina in 2012. He left the United States in 2013. Please refer to his CV for more on his credentials. 

Dr Hui is currently hiring postgraduate students and postdoctoral fellows. Please email him to discuss more if you are interested.
