Short Biography: Dr. Jie Shen is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Orthopaedic Surgery at Washington University in St Louis, which currently ranks first in the United States for National Institutes of Health (NIH) funding for orthopaedic research. As a cartilage biologist with specialization in osteoarthritis (OA) and fracture repair, Dr. Shen’s interests span aspects of bone and cartilage research, and are mainly focused on injury, repair, and regeneration of musculoskeletal tissues with the goal to understand the progenitor cell population, signals, and role of inflammation and aging on tissue injury and regeneration at the cellular and molecular level. By using of state-of-the-art methodologies, including genetic animal models, unbiased sequencing and cell/tissue engineering, Dr. Shen is to apply his multidisciplinary expertise in inflammation, metabolism and epigenetics, in musculoskeletal systems to advance the understanding of the pathological mechanisms and development of preventive and management strategies as well as personalized biologic therapies for OA and fracture nonunion. Dr. Shen’s innovative work has been highly recognized by NIH and he has been awarded with 3 R01s and 1 R21 since he became the independent investigator in 2018. Dr. Shen is currently ranked in the top 15 of NIH-funded principal investigators in orthopaedics, with a total of $9M funding. Dr. Shen’s work has been recently published in Nature Communications, Journal of Clinical Investigation, PNAS, and Bone Research.This webinar will be moderated by Dr. Di Chen, Professor, Shenzhen Institutes of Advanced Technology, Chinese Academy of Sciences.
