a postdoctoral associate at the Broad Institute
Feng Zhang. I
received Ph.D. from Electrical
Engineering and Computer Science Department at MIT in 2012, under
supervision of Prof.
Robert S. Langer and Prof.
Ali Khademhosseini. I
was a short-term postdoctoral fellow in the David H.
Koch Institute for Integrative Cancer Research at MIT in 2013
Robert S. Langer.
My Ph.D. research focused on microengineered stimuli-responsive polymers, biomaterials, and high-throughput systems. My Ph.D. studies were featured as MIT Spotlight and in several news articles, including MIT-News, Science Daily, Cell, Forbes, Materials Today, R&D Magazine, Eurekalert, Nanowerk, Physorg, Physics Inventions, Biology News, Chemistry News, e!Science News, my Science, and many other news articles.
I always believe that you can achieve any task if you devote yourself to it, and every person should do something for improving the world.
