Dr. Ning Zhang


Dr. Ning Zhang graduated in 2018 from Southeast University with a PhD in Biomedical Engineering. Within the frame of his PhD project, Ning aimed at establishing biomimetic microenvironments for the regulation of cell behavior towards tissue engineering applications, collaborating with Prof. Voros Janos (Head of Laboratory of Biosensors and Bioelectronics, ETH Zurich) and Prof. Martin Ehrbar (Head of Laboratory for Cell and Tissue Engineering, University Hospital Zurich) in Switzerland. He accumulated knowledge in hydrogel fabrication and characterization, harvesting expertise in 3D cell culture. Ning joined the µOrganoLab group as a postdoctoral researcher in January 2021. Based on his previous research, he will focus on integrating biomaterials into organ-on-a-chip systems. In his free time, Ning enjoys reading, hiking, and swimming.
