UC San Diego and LINK-J have co-hosted a series of seminars inviting top UCSD researchers to Japan every year.
This year, instead, we will be holding a series of joint webinars with top researchers from both UCSD and Japanese universities.
UC San Diego and Osaka University have a long history of collaborations in education and research. In recent years, we have strived to expand our areas of collaboration to include bioengineering, bioinformatics, tissue engineering, and regenerative medicine. LINK-J and UC San Diego are pleased to offer two joint webinars, in cooperation with the Osaka University Global Center for Medical Engineering and Informatics (MEI Center), at which investigators from both institutions will present recent work in “Biofabrication.”(Session2)

Dr. Andrew McCulloch, Distinguished Professor of Bioengineering and Medicine; Director, Institute of Engineering in Medicine, UC San Diego
Dr. Andrew McCulloch is Distinguished Professor of Bioengineering and Medicine at the University of California San Diego and Director of the Institute for Engineering in Medicine. He earned his bachelor (1981) and Ph.D. (1986) degrees in Engineering Science at the University of Auckland and joined the UC San Diego faculty in 1987. He directs the UCSD Interfaces Graduate Training Program and the Interdisciplinary Ph.D. Specialization in Multi-Scale Biology. Dr. McCulloch served as Vice Chair of the Bioengineering Department from 2002 to 2005 and Chair from 2005 to 2008. He is also a member of Qualcomm Institute, the Center for Research on Biological Systems, and a Senior Fellow of the San Diego Supercomputer Center.

Dr. Shaochen Chen, Professor and Chair, NanoEngineering, UC San Diego
Shaochen Chen is a Professor and Chair in the Department of NanoEngineering and an Affiliated Professor in the Department of Bioengineering at the University of California San Diego. He is the founding co-director of the Biomaterials and Tissue Engineering Center at UC San Diego. He received his PhD in Mechanical Engineering in 1999 from the University of California, Berkeley. Before joining UC San Diego, 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 in the National Science Foundation (NSF).
Chen’s primary research interests include: biomaterials and tissue engineering, 3D printing and bioprinting, stem cell and regenerative medicine, biomaterials and nanomaterials, and organ/tissue-on-a-chip. He has published over 150 papers in top journals and 16 book/book chapters. He is a leading expert in micro- and nanoscale 3D printing and pioneered the development of projection style 3D bioprinting techniques for rapid printing of cell-laden tissue scaffolds. These precise biomimetic scaffolds offer a unique platform for the investigation of cell interactions with microenvironments and the creation of functional human tissue models such as liver, heart, spinal cord, brain, and cancer.
Among his numerous awards, Chen received the CAREER award from NSF, Young Investigator award from the Office of Naval Research (ONR), and Edward Nagy New Investigator Award from the National Institute of Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering (NIBIB). As an active member in his professional community, Chen is a Fellow of five major societies including the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS), the American Institute for Medical and Biological Engineering (AIMBE), the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME), the International Society for Optics and Photonics (SPIE), and the International Society for NanoManufacturing (ISNM).
