Center for Dynamical Biomarkers
Chung-Kang Peng, Ph.D., is the Co-Director of the Rey Institute for Nonlinear Dynamics in Medicine at the Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center / Harvard Medical School. He is one of the founding members of the National Research Resource for Complex Physiologic Signals (PhysioNet) funded by the National Institutes of Health.

Prof. Peng is currently on leave from Harvard to serve as Dean of the College of Health Sciences and Technology, and K.-T. Li Chair Professor of the National Central University in Taiwan. He is also the Co-Director of the International Research-Intensive Center of Excellence in Taiwan: Center for Dynamical Biomarkers and Translational Medicine (established by the National Science Council of Taiwan in 2011), and adjunct Distinguished Professor of Yuan Ze University (Taiwan), and Visiting Professor of Peking University (China).

Prof. Peng has expertise in statistical physics and its application to the study of physiological measures. He has been working at the interface of statistical physics and biology since he was a graduate student. Over the years, he and his collaborators have developed several useful computational techniques, including the following:

These new approaches have been highlighted in Nature News and Views (Nature 419: 263, 2002), the American Institute of Physics News Update (Aug. 1, 2002), the Boston Globe (Aug. 5, 2003), the Harvard Focus (Mar. 8, 2002; Sep. 16, 2005; Dec. 2, 2005), and the Voice of Amreica News (in Chinese). These new approaches have a wide range of applications in multiple disciplines, such as mathematics, physics, economics, biology and clinical medicine. Prof. Peng's publications have been cited more than 13,000 times (h-index: 54).
