Yan Yan Shery Huang's Biography

Yan Yan Shery Huang, University Lecturer in Bioengineering, University of Cambridge

Shery Huang completed her MEng degree in Materials Science and Engineering from Imperial College London in 2007 (1st Class; top of the class). With a Cambridge Gates Scholarship, she then pursued a PhD in Physics at Cambridge, focusing on nanotechnology. After graduating from her PhD in 2011, she was awarded an Oppenheimer Fellowship and a Homerton College Junior Research Fellowship. Since Aug 2013, she is a University Lecturer in Bioengineering at Cambridge. She was the lead organizer for the Biofabrication Symposium at the MRS 2016 Spring Conference. She was also selected as one of the 26 women to present at ‘The Meaning of Success: Insights from Women at Cambridge'.

Emerging devices created at the bio-abio interfaces calls for new fabrication processes that can integrate a wider choice of biological and synthetic materials, combined with delivery of complexity in feature sizes, structures and functionalities.

Herein, we explore various bioinspired fabrication approaches to replicate the cross-length scale, and multi-material nature of tissue functions. At the extracellular matrix (nano/ micro feature) length-scale, 3D fibre patterning was used to create fibrillar structures in multiple arrays with designable orientations. We demonstrate biological applications utilising the fibers’ topography to guide the assembly of cellular aggregates in a 3D culture context; and optoelectronic applications showing ‘floating’ fibre-array electronics. Spanning to the cellular and organ-scale, embedded printing is employed to structure soft materials, such as elastomers and hydrogels. By formulating the ‘supporting bath’ and ‘sacrificial ink’ compositions, we show that soft materials can be tailor-made for their external shapes and internal architectures (such as porosity). Applications in creating heterogeneous material integration to mimic the tissue microenvironments, and dissecting the impedance properties of human cochlea, are demonstrated.
