Dr. Wei Jiang leads the Neuropsychocardiology laboratory at Duke University Medical Center. Dr. Jiang's main research interests include understanding the interplay between the mind-brain activity and cardiovascular system, and discovering interventions that modify the negative impact of negative emotions on the cardiovascular system. Her research covers the spectrum of epidemiological cohort study, translational investigation, clinical trials, and implementational evaluation. Another research area of Dr. Jiang is to investigate effective methods for mental health task shifting in low and middle income countries, particularly aiming in China.
