School of Biomedical Sciences, Institute of Tissue Engineering and Regenerative Medicine and InnoHK – Centre for Neuromusculoskeletal Regenerative Medicine, The Chinese University of Hong Kong: The Chinese University of Hong Kong (The Chinese University), a leading international university in Asia, established the Institute of Tissue Engineering and Regenerative Medicine (iTERM) in 2018 (https://www.iterm.cuhk.edu.hk/). Meanwhile, Hong Kong’s Innovation and Technology Commission (ITC) will establish the InnoHK Innovative Hong Kong R&D Platform – Centre for Neuromusculoskeletal Regenerative Medicine in 2022. Collaboration. The Centre for Neuromusculoskeletal Regenerative Medicine has been a collaborative R&D laboratory between the Chinese University of Hong Kong and the Karolinska Institute in Sweden since the launch of the InnoHK initiative. The Karolinska Institute is the largest single medical school in the world and one of the most prestigious in the world.
Professor Dan Wang, Group PI, was appointed Assistant Professor in the School of Biomedical Sciences, Institute of Tissue Engineering and Regenerative Medicine and Department of Orthopaedics and Traumatology at the Chinese University of Hong Kong in 2022. Professor Wang Dan received his B.S. and M.S. degrees in dentistry from Sun Yat-sen University, his D.D.S. degree from the University of Pittsburgh School of Dentistry, and then completed a postdoctoral fellowship at Stanford University. Professor Wang Dan has a multidimensional and interdisciplinary experience, including clinical practice and basic research. In her current research project, Professor Wang Dan and her team are focusing on the role of extracellular matrix (ECM) and environmental stress in the stem cell microenvironment and the further development of novel biomaterials for bone and tendon tissues. Her research has been published in Advanced Functional Materials, Biomaterials, Nature Publishing Group Asia Materials, ActaBiomaterialia, Stem Cell Research & Therapy and other journals.
