1 Feb 2021

We are pleased to announce that our colleagues Prof. YANG Mo, Dr. RUAN Sharon YC, Dr. TAN Youhua and Dr. ZHAO Xin received Faculty of Engineering Research Grant Achievement Award 2019  in recognition of their outstanding performance and contributions in securing external competitive research grants.

Prof. Yang’s research focuses on microfluidic device for biosensing and nanomaterials based bioprobes for imaging, sensing and therapy. Dr. Ruan’s research focuses on ion channels, a group of membrane proteins, and their related signaling transduction in reproduction/development and associated human diseases. Dr. Tan’s research focuses on cell mechanics and mechanobiology, especially the fundamental roles of mechanical forces in tumor metastasis. Dr. Zhao’s research focuses on Translational Regenerative Medicine, where she integrates multi-disciplinary approaches including material science, cell biology and medicine to modulate cell microenvironments, control cell behaviors and generate tissue-engineered organs, for addressing clinical issues. All of them have led and participated in a number of multidisciplinary research projects over the years.

Congratulations to Prof. Yang, Dr. Ruan, Dr. Tan and Dr. Zhao for their excellent performance!
