Fei Chen（陈飞）, Ph.D.
Ph.D. Macromolecular Chemistry, University of Marburg, Germany
postdoctoral, Chemical Engineering Department, Queen’s University, Canada
His current research interest is the development of regenerative medicine strategies for soft connective tissue replacement. The approach involves developing synthetic biomimetic scaffolds or mammalian decellularized extracellular matrix/synthetic hydrogel biohybrids as an inductive environment for constructive remodeling of tissue.

B.S. Yan Tai University.Meng is working on developing fiber-reinforced adhesive bioinks for 3D bioprinting applications using functionalized polysaccharides. The goal is to produce mechanically tunable constructs for integrative cartilage and skin regeneration. She is also working on developing gene-activated matrix to promote functional cartilage regeneration. In her spare time Meng likes to run and travel.
