Clinical Work began as a clinician in Beijing in Aug. 1988 in the China-Japan Friendship Hospital after graduating from the Sun Yat-sen University of medical sciences. As one of the earliest professional CCM (critical care medicine) doctors in China, Dr. Zhao got further training in the Dept. of Anesthesiology, Faculty of Medicine, University of Heidelberg since July 1976 and was awarded MD of CCM in Sept. 2000. Then Dr. Zhao went back to Guangzhou, China and worked continuously in ICU as CCM clinician in the Sun Yat-sen University Cancer Center until present.

From Sept. 1998 to Aug. 1999, Dr. Zhao was invited as visiting professor for scientific exchange in the Dept. of Molecular and Cellular Oncology and Immunology, MD Anderson Cancer Center, University of Texas. Dr. Zhao is professional expert in CCM work and administration. His PI team are now practicing modern clinical therapies and monitoring technique including hemodynamic monitoring, bedside emergent continuous renal replacement therapy (CRRT) therapy, mechanical ventilation and CPR manipulations skillfully in treating patients with severe infection, multiple organ dysfunction syndrome (MODS), sepsis, shock, DIC, circulatory/ respiratory/ renal failure, perioperative organ transplantation, sudden cardiac death, etc.

As director of the Dept. of Infection Control, Dr. Zhao is also in responsible for the Center’s administrative strategic prevention and clinical therapeutic treatment/consultation in cases of infection.


Research projects are mainly in the area of severe clinical infection,inflammatory dysfunction and MODS, esp. septic liver injury, and the respective clinical therapies, eg. continuous renal replacement therapy (CRRT) and anti-inflammatory drugs effects in patients with sepsis.Inflammatory mediators including oxygen and nitrogen free radicals, cytokines, adhesion molecules, some special enzymes and nuclear factors, and the PCD phenomenon were investigated.In addition, research is also performed to enhance hospital infection strategic administration and therapeutic control.
