Jack Yang, Visiting Scholar 

Dr. Yang is a visiting scholar at Terasaki Institute for Biomedical Innovation (TIBI), where he is focused on developing innovative microphysiological systems that integrate organ-on-a-chip, biosensors, and biomaterials to develop personalized solutions. He received his Ph.D. in Electronics and Electrical Engineering (2022) and M.D. in Biomedical Engineering (2017) from National Yang Ming Chiao Tung University in Taiwan. During the Ph.D., his research focused on developing bio-retinal implants and lung-on-a-chip models. His studies explored the use of graphene oxide composites as electroactive hybrid biointerfaces for retinal prostheses. The hybrid biointerface was further employed for creating micropatterns of neuronal cells using bioprinting techniques, paving the way for the next generation of biohybrid electronic devices based on biointerfaces. In the lung-on-a-chip studies, his research investigated the harmful effects of air pollution on the respiratory system and the mechanism of SARS-CoV-2 infection. He also engineered a lung fibrosis disease model by integrating a photothermal-responsive smart hydrogel into the lung-on-a-chip, realizing wireless and real-time control of the microenvironment of dynamic mechanical responses to recapitulate personalized parameters. Dr. Yang specializes in microphysiological systems (organ-on-a-chip), tissue engineering, and biomaterials, and is interested in using biosensor technology for specific real-time analysis of organ-on-a-chip systems. He joined TIBI in March 2023 and is excited to continue his research in developing personalized solutions for healthcare.
