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.

Myocardial infarction (MI) is a major contributor to cardiovascular disease, and it is the leading cause of death in the world. Although much progress has been made in treating tissues via stem cell therapy, a major challenge now is regenerating the tissue architecture to integrate a microvascular circulation and afferent arterioles into such an engineered tissue. 3D cell printing technology is currently capable of directly embedding vasculature into the engineered tissue construct by depositing various cells with a flowable hydrogel called bioink. In this study, we used a bioink composed of heart decellularized extracellular matrix (hdECM) to enhance tissue functions and fabricate vascular network embedded 3D patch for grafting after myocardiac infarction.
