Congratulations to Dr ZHAO Xin, Member of the Research Institute for Future Food (RiFood), Research Institute for Intelligent Wearable Systems (RI-IWEAR) and Research Centre for Chinese Medicine Innovation (RCMI), Associate Professor in the Department of Applied Biology and Chemical Technology (ABCT), for receiving the 2024 Biomaterials Young Investigator Award.
Dr Zhao’s research focuses on Translational Regenerative Medicine, where she integrates material science, cell biology, engineering and medicine, to develop solutions for modulating cell micro-environments, controlling cell behaviours and generating tissue-engineered organs, thus addressing critical clinical issues.
Launched by the Society of Biomaterials together with international journals including Biomaterials and Materials Today, the award recognises and encourages early career researchers in biomaterials science with outstanding contributions to the field. An award ceremony will be held at the 12th World Biomaterials Congress on 26–31 May 2024 in Daegu, South Area. Dr Zhao will receive the award in person and share on her innovative research.
