Congratulations to Boyang! MDDI Online has named Boyang Zhang (PhD 1T4) as a rising star in the medical technology sector.

July 28th, 2016 by laschinger

Boyang worked on the AngioChip as part of his PhD studies in the Chemical Engineering department at U of T. The chip offers a way to vascularize tissue with a permeable, mechanically stable polymer vascular bed. Zhang is currently part of a team of researchers hand building AngioChip platforms, which have potential to be used for drug discovery and regenerative medicine. He explained, “Engineering vascular networks within a functional tissue is essential to achieve high fidelity organ-on-a-chip models on the micro-scale as well as for the clinical success of solid tissue replacements on the macro-scale.” Read full story.
