   Chinese Medical Journal (English) editorial board
Research Orientation, Awards and Honors:
Dr. Gao’s research has focused on 1) Establishment and assessment of novel imaging techniques in early diagnosis and therapy-guiding in acute ischemic stroke, 2) Assessment and analysis of flow pattern and hemodynamic parameters at carotid bifurcation using MRA and CFD techniques, 3) application of molecular imaging in CNS, and 4) application of MR Elastography in Brain. He took the lead in putting forward the pre-infarction period,and the evidenced- based radiology in the world. He provided imaging methods, evaluation standards and imaging technique platform for clinical risk assessment and diagnosis of pre-infarction.  He won 1) one second prize for Science and Technology Progress Award of Ministry of Education, 2) one second prize of Beijing Science and Technology Progress Award,3) seven third prize of Beijing Science and Technology Progress Award, 4) first prize for 7 projects and Second prize for 14 projects for Science and Technology Achievement Award of the Beijing Municipal Health Bureau, 5) third prize of Chinese Medical Science and Technology Award, 6) first prize of Wang Zhongcheng Medical Award Grant, 7) Beijing outstanding contribution experts, and received the state council special allowance. He has published 64 papers as first author and more than 100 papers as corresponding author in National and International publications.
