Rong Fan's Biography

Rong Fan, Associate Professor of Biomedical Engineering; Director, Single-Cell Profiling Core, Yale University

Rong Fan is Associate Professor of Biomedical Engineering at Yale University. He received a Ph.D. in Chemistry from the University of California at Berkeley followed by a postdoctoral training at Caltech in the field of cancer nanotechnology. His research interest at Yale University is centered on the development of an array of single-cell omics technologies to analyze deep functional heterogeneity in human cancers and the immune system. He is directing the Single-Cell Profiling Core of the Dana Farber Physical Sciences Oncology Center (PS-OC) program. He is the recipient of numerous awards including the Howard Temin Pathway to Independence award from National Cancer Institute, the NSF Early Stage Faculty Career Development (CAREER) Award, and the Packard Fellowship for Science and Engineering.

A major challenge in tissue engineered organ transplantation is revascularization. How to fabricate a perfusable microvascular network in neotissue to support the tissue growth in vivo is crucial. We are working to address this problem by developing a two-step approach for synthesizing neotissues with perfusable microvasculature. First we use a microfluidic system to create a large-scale endothelialized microvessels that can be retrieved to form a free-standing microvascular network. Second, this microvascular network is used as a template to seed perivascular and tissue specific cells to grow neotissues. This modular approach is generic and versatile for the potential application to a range of functional tissues including liver, bone, and pancreatic tissues.
