Cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases have become one of the diseases with highest incidence and mortality rates. Cardiovascular Disease & Diabetes are a chronic, metabolic disease, Prof Zhang has been conducting research for the prevention and control of chronic, metabolic diseases. Natural product active substance is helpful for the prevention of the cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases and diabetes. The aim of the study is to find the chemical structure of natural product active substance and evaluation and mechanism of activity. The research on this field led to Prof Zhang with outstanding publications on international journals.
