Xiong Zhuo research group (BRE labs) Recruit postdocs and research assistants

Location: Lee Shau Kee Science and Technology Building, Haidian District, Beijing, China

1. Introduction of BRE Lab and PI

With the support of the Department of Mechanical Engineering at Tsinghua University, the Biomanufacturing Center carries out this work. The BRE uses the 111 Program "Biomanufacturing and in Vitro Life System Engineering" as an interdisciplinary innovation and introduction base (" 111 "base), Beijing Key Laboratory of Biomanufacturing and Rapid Prototyping Technology, and Beijing International Science and Technology Cooperation Base for 3D Bioprinting as the main research platforms. There are nearly 1,000 square meters of laboratory space, with a strong hardware foundation and team support.

Xiong Zhuo, the leader of the group, is a long-time professor of the Department of Mechanical Engineering at Tsinghua University, as well as a vice president of the Beijing Mechanical Engineering Society and deputy director of the Beijing Key Laboratory for Biomanufacturing and Rapid Prototyping. In the emerging field of biomanufacturing and applying 3D printing technology to the biomedical field, he is one of the earliest researchers to enter the field. In 1999, he began to research 3D bioprinting and presided over the first project funded by the National Foundation Committee in the field of cellular 3D printing in 2004. His achievements, including low-temperature deposition manufacturing and cellular 3D printing, were recognized by the Ministry of Education twice as being at the international leading level. He was awarded the Beijing Science and Technology Prize.  

Professor Xiong Zhuo has published over 100 articles in Advanced Materials, Advanced Science, Advanced Functional Materials, Biomaterials, Small, and other journals as a corresponding author with 3296 citations in SCOPUS and 32 H-factors, as well as obtaining more than 30 Chinese invention patents. Our group has taken part in key projects funded by the National Natural Science Foundation of China (NSFC), as well as projects of ministries and commissions, which provide sufficient financial support for research. In addition to maintaining a good working relationship with Columbia University, Harvard University, Imperial College London, and University of Nuremberg, we provide active support to members of our team who wish to study abroad or participate in exchange programs.
