Shaochen Chen's Biography



Shaochen Chen, Professor and Vice Chair of NanoEngineering, Co-Director of Biomaterials and Tissue Engineering Center, University of California-San Diego

Dr. Shaochen Chen is a Professor and Vice Chair in the NanoEngineering Department and Professor Affiliate in the Bioengineering Department and Radiology Department at the University of California, San Diego (UCSD). He is a founding co-director of the Biomaterials and Tissue Engineering Center at UCSD. Before joining UCSD, Dr. Chen had been a Professor and a Pearlie D. Henderson Centennial Endowed Faculty Fellow in Engineering at the University of Texas at Austin from 2001 to 2010. Between 2008 and 2010, he served as the Program Director for the Nanomanufacturing Program of the National Science Foundation (NSF). Dr. Chen’s primary research interests include: biomaterials and 3D bioprinting, stem cell and regenerative medicine, tissue engineering, laser and nanomanufacturing. He has published over 120 papers in top journals and 12 book/book chapters. Among his numerous awards, Dr. Chen received the NSF CAREER award, ONR Young Investigator award, and NIH Edward Nagy New Investigator Award. For his seminal contributions to 3D printing, bioprinting, and nanomanufacturing, Dr. Chen was awarded Milton C. Shaw Manufacturing Research Medal from the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) in 2017. He is a Fellow of AAAS, AIMBE, ASME, SPIE, and ISNM.

In this talk, I will present our laboratory’s recent research efforts in rapid 3D bioprinting to create 3D tissue constructs using a variety of biomaterials and cells. These 3D biomaterials are functionalized with precise control of micro-architecture, mechanical (e.g. stiffness), chemical, and biological properties. Such functional biomaterials allow us to investigate cell-microenvironment interactions at nano- and micro-scales in response to integrated physical and chemical stimuli. From these fundamental studies we have been creating both in vitro and in vivo precision tissues for tissue regeneration, disease modeling, and drug discovery. To vascularize these engineered tissues, we have also developed a pre-vascularization technique by using the rapid 3D bioprinting method. Multiple cell types mimicking the native vascular cell composition were encapsulated directly into hydrogels with precisely controlled distribution.
