He is also the Co-Director for the Duke Comprehensive Stroke Center. Dr. Feng is a physician scientist and his research portfolios include developing imaging biomarker for post-stroke motor outcomes prediction, and use of non-invasive grain stimulation tools, such as, transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) and low intensity focused ultrasound to enhance post-stroke motor recovery. His research has been actively funded by National Institute of Health, American Heart Association/American Stroke Association and industry. He is currently leading an NIH funded U01 multi-center, phase II study called TRANSPORT 2 (TRANScranial direct current stimulation for POst-stroke motor Recovery – a phase II sTudy) – on the NIH stroke trial network.
