Short Biography: Dr. Xinping Zhang is an Associate Professor with tenure in the Center for Musculoskeletal Research at the University of Rochester Medical Center and is affiliated with the Department of Biomedical Engineering program, Cell Biology of Disease program in Pathology Department, and Translational Biomedical Science program at University of Rochester. Dr. Zhang's research has been focusing on skeletal repair and reconstruction which integrates a number of research topics, including bone/cartilage development, cell signaling, stem cell biology and bone tissue engineering. By combining genetic models with intravital imaging and tissue engineering approaches, her multidisciplinary research programs aim at addressing challenges encountered by physicians when treating a wide array of musculoskeletal related injuries, namely large segmental defect, aging, and compromised skeletal healing. She has been continuously funded by NIH and awarded over $10 million over the past 15 years to study mechanisms of skeletal healing and bone tissue vascularization. Dr. Zhang has over 60 publications including Journal of Clinical Investigation, Journal of Experimental Medicine, Journal of Bone and Mineral Research, Molecular Therapy, Advanced Materials, Tissue Engineering, Biomaterials, and ACS Applied Materials & Interfaces. She is a member of ICMRS since 2002.This webinar will be moderated by Dr. Liyun Wang, Professor, Department of Mechanical Engineering, University of Delaware.
