Professor Xiong Zhuo currently serves as vice president of the Beijing Mechanical Engineering Society and as deputy director of the Beijing Key Laboratory for Biomanufacturing and Rapid Prototyping. He is one of the pioneers to enter the emerging interdisciplinary research field of biofabricationand extend 3D bioprinting technology to the field of biomedicine. As early as 1999, he began to engage in the research of 3D bioprinting. In 2004, he presided over the first funded project of the National Foundation of China in the field of 3D bioprinting. He invented the low-temperature deposition manufacturing process and a variety of bioprinting techniques. There have been two appraisals of the related achievements as being of international leading level by the Ministry of Education, and one Beijing Science and Technology Award has been awarded. In recent years, he has published more than 100 articles in Biomaterials, Small, Advanced Functional Materials, and other journals as the corresponding author, which have been cited 3300 times in SCOPUS with an H factor of 32. In addition, more than 20 Chinese invention patents have been granted. He has undertaken key projects of the Joint Fund of the National Natural Science Foundation (NSF), general NSF projects, and ministry projects. He was a visiting professor at the Fourth Military Medical University, a visiting researcher at the Institute of Basic Medicine of the Academy of Military Medical Sciences, and an adjunct professor at Shenzhen Graduate School of Tsinghua University. He has served as a member of the board of directors of the Chinese Mechanical Engineering Society, a standing member/Director General of the Biomanufacturing Branch of the Chinese Mechanical Engineering Society, and a member of the Professional Committee of Aerospace Medical Engineering and Space Biology of the Chinese Society of Astronautics.
Dr. Ting Zhang
Professor Zhang has received support from the National Youth Talent Program. She is currently the Director General of the Bio-manufacturing Engineering Branch of the Chinese Mechanical Engineering Society as well as the Secretary General of the Biomaterials Advanced Manufacturing Branch of the Chinese Biomaterials Society. In recent years, she has been actively involved in the research of bioprinting and advanced biofabrication technologies development, myocardial tissue engineering and vascularization, in vitro microenvironment and bioreactor, organ on a chip and other biomanufacturing related cross-fields. She presided over key research and development projects of the Ministry of Science and Technology, general projects and Youth Foundation of the National Natural Science Foundation, China-South Korea International Exchange Fund and other projects. In recent years, she has published more than 50 articles in Biofabrication, Biomaterials, Advance Healthcare Materials, and other journals as the corresponding author, which have been cited 1450 times in SCOPUS with an H factor of 19. In addition, more than 20 Chinese invention patents have been granted.
Dr. Yongcong Fang
Fang Yongcong is an Assistant Researcher at Tsinghua University and was selected to be a member of the Beijing Association for Science and Technology's 2023-2025 Young Talent Promotion Program. His work has been supported by the Chinese Postdoctoral Foundation, as well as other projects. He has served as a guest editor for Micromachines, and as a young editor of authoritative journals such as Nano Materials Science (latest impact factor of 9.9), VIEW (latest impact factor of 8.6), and Additive Manufacturing Frontiers and Applied Research. He contributed chapters to a book on 3D bioprinting, and one research was recognized as internationally advanced (ranked 5/11). As a first author, he has published more than ten articles in leading journals, including Advanced Materials, Advanced Functional Materials, Advanced Science, and Biomaterials, and has obtained six patents for inventions. His work has been featured in various media outlets, such as GuangmingNetwork, MIT Review, and CCTV News.
