- Stem cells and biomaterial interactions
Dr. Chan completed her undergraduate studies in Biochemistry at the Chinese University of Hong Kong in 1994. She obtained her Ph.D. in Surgical Science Division of the Faculty of Medicine from CUHK in 1998 and finished her first post-doctoral fellowship in Orthopaedics and Traumatology in the same institution in 1999. Dr. Chan then joined the Innovation and Technology Commission participating in the operation of the Small Entrepreneur Research Assistant Program under the Innovation and Technology Fund. After a one-year service in the government, she received her second postdoctoral fellowship in the Wellman Laboratories for Photomedicine, Massachusetts General Hospital in Harvard Medical School. Dr. Chan moved back to Hong Kong in 2002 and worked in the CK Life Sciences Int’l Inc. as a project manager. She joined the Department of Mechanical Engineering in the University of Hong Kong in 2003. Her main research interests are tissue engineering and regeneration, biosurgery, laser medicine, stem cells and biomaterial interactions, and mechanoregulation.
