The specialty of pulmonary vascular medicine in China: Peking University’s emerging discipline

Authors: Yiming Chen, Hua Luo


In recent years, the discipline of pulmonary vascular disease (PVD) has developed rapidly in China. The three pulmonary vascular centers in China each possess its own outstanding achievements. The center of Peking University focuses on clinical practice, scientific research, and education. By integrating different disciplines as a whole, scholars in Peking University are making efforts to develop pulmonary vascular science into an independent discipline. Their work is considered to be essential for reducing the morbidity and mortality of PVDs.
