Biography

Education:

  Ph. D in Cell biology, Suzhou Institute of Nano-tech and Nano-bionics, Chinese Academy of Sciences

  B.S. in Life science, University of Science and Technology of China

Research Interest:

    My scientific interests focus on the biology of human mesenchymal stem cells (hMSCs) and their applications in tissue engineering. I am particularly interested in scaffold fabrication and activation to modulate MSC/chondrocyte fate determination and enhance their bioactivity for augmented tissue regeneration. In addition, I’m also very interested in combining nanomaterials with scaffold to study the biological responses related to physical and chemical properties of modified scaffolds.
