Scholarship Description:

The University of Maryland School of Medicine (UMMS) is currently recruiting a postdoctoral fellow to join the Yuan Laboratory, where Dr Yifan Yuan is currently a tenure-track Assistant Professor at UMMS. The lab focuses on lung and vascular regeneration and engineering from the perspectives of molecular biology, bioengineering and systems biology. Currently, the main research tools include whole organ decellularisation/recellularisation, in vitro organ culture, single cell sequencing, 3D bioreactors, stem cell culture, hydrogels and biomaterials.

The University of Maryland, known as the University of Maryland, College Park (University of Maryland, College Park), founded in 1856, is located in Maryland, USA, and is known as the “Public Ivy”. It is ranked 55th in the 2023 U.S. News America’s Best Colleges and 57th in the 2023 U.S. News World University Rankings, with the College of Engineering ranked 19th.The University of Maryland School of Medicine (UMSOM) is located in Baltimore, Maryland, USA.
