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.

Continuous Projection 3D Bioprinting For Functional Scaffolds and Tissue Models

Friday, 5 October 2018 at 09:30

Add to Calendar ▼

In this talk, I will present our laboratory’s recent research efforts in rapid continuous projection 3D bioprinting to create 3D scaffolds using a variety of biomaterials. These 3D biomaterials are functionalized with precise control of micro-architecture, mechanical (e.g. stiffness and Poisson’s ratio), chemical, and biological properties. Design, fabrication, and experimental results will be discussed. 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 can create both in vitro and in vivo microphysiological systems such as a human liver tissue for tissue regeneration, disease modeling, and drug discovery.
