Jinah Jang's Biography

Jinah Jang, Associate Professor, Pohang University of Science And Technology (POSTECH)

Dr. Jinah Jang received her PhD at Pohang University of Science and Technology (POSTECH) in Korea, and trained as postdoctoral fellow in POSTECH and Institute for Stem Cell and Regenerative Medicine at University of Washington. She has joined the POSTECH in 2017 and now an Associate Professor in the Convergence IT Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, and School of Interdisciplinary Bioscience and Bioengineering. She has published more than 90 peer-reviewed articles in journals including Chemical Reviews, Science Advances, Advanced Functional Materials, Nature Communications, and Biomaterials. Her h-index and citations are 38 and more than 6,000, respectively (calculated by Google Scholar, as of January 10, 2022). She currently serves as an Editorial Board Member of International Journal of Molecular Science, Applied Sciences, and Journal of Korean Society for Precision Engineering and as the Associate Editor of Bio-Design and Manufacturing. She also has served as a board of directors for International Society for Biofabrication, and as a board member in multiple societies including the Korean Society for Precision Engineering. She has received numerous awards including the ISBF young scientist award (2014), Excellence Young Researcher Award from Korea Society for Biomaterials (2020), Korea Tissue Engineering and Regenerative Medicine Society (2021) and Korean Society for Precision Engineering (2021). Her research interest lies in engineering the functional human tissues using high-performance stem cells and printable biomaterials-based 3D bioprinting technology.

Recent development in bioengineering enables us to create human tissues by integrating various native microenvironments, including tissue specific cells, biochemical and biophysical cues. A significant transition of 3D bioprinting technology into the biomedical field helps to improve the function of engineered tissues by recapitulating physiologically relevant geometry, complexity, and vascular network. Bioinks, used as printable biomaterials, facilitate dispensing of cells through a dispenser as well as supports cell viability and function by providing engineered extracellular matrix. Successful construction of functional human tissues requires accurate environments that are able to mimic biochemical and biophysical properties of target tissue. Formulation of printable materials with stem cells are critical process to guide cellular behavior; however, this is rarely considered in the context of bioprinting in which the tissue should be formed. This talk will cover my research interests in building 3D human tissues and organs to understand, diagnose and treat various intractable diseases, particularly for cardiovascular disease. A development of tissue-derived decellularized extracellular matrix bioink platform will be mainly discussed as a straightforward strategy to provide biological and biophysical phenomena into engineered tissues. I will also discuss about a development of 3D vascularized cardiac stem cell patch that is generated by integrating the concept of tissue engineering and the developed platform technologies. Combined with recent advances in human pluripotent stem cell technologies, printed human tissues could serve as an enabling platform for studying complex physiology in tissue and organ contexts of individuals.
