2)  Molecular imaging using contrast-enhanced ultrasound and site-targeted microbubbles, in particular to track stem cell therapies.

3)  Small animal echocardiographic imaging of cardiac function

4)  Ultrasound-mediated gene delivery for ischemic cardiovascular disease, for heart failure and diabetic cardiomyopathy, and for anti-tumour therapies.

5)  Stem and progenitor cell therapies for ischemic cardiovascular disease, diabetic cardiomyopathy and heart failure.
