TBEP Research Seminar Series: Extracellular Matrix Cues for Engineering Angiogenesis
July 22, 2021 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm EDT
Please join us for a TBEP webinar on Thursday July 22, 2021 featuring Prof. Ngan Huang (Assistant Professor of Cardiothoracic Surgery, Stanford University; Courtesy Assistant Professor of Chemical Engineering, Stanford University; Principal Investigator, Veterans Affairs Palo Alto Health Care System).
Ngan F. Huang is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Cardiothoracic Surgery at Stanford University and Principal Investigator at the Veterans Affairs Palo Alto Health Care System. Dr. Huang completed her BS in Chemical Engineering from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, followed by a PhD in bioengineering from the University of California Berkeley & University of California San Francisco Joint Program in Bioengineering. Prior to joining the faculty, she was a postdoctoral scholar in the Division of Cardiovascular Medicine at Stanford University. Her laboratory investigates the interactions between stem cells and extracellular matrix microenvironment for engineering cardiovascular tissues to treat cardiovascular and musculoskeletal diseases. Dr. Huang has authored over 90 publications and patents, including reports in Nat Med, PNAS, and Nano Lett. She has received numerous honours, including a NIH K99/R00 Career Development Award, Fellow of the American Heart Association, a Young Investigator award from the Society for Vascular Medicine, a Young Investigator Award from the Tissue Engineering and Regenerative Medicine International Society-Americas, and a Rising Star award at the Cell & Molecular Bioengineering conference. Her research is funded by the NIH, NSF, Department of Defense, the Department of Veteran Affairs, and the American Heart Association.
