About the author
Zhang-Qi Feng completed a visiting scholarship at The University of Michigan in Ann Arbor as an exchange student (2008–2010), and then earned his Ph.D. (2010) degree in Biomedical Engineering from Southeast University. In fall 2010, he moved to Sun Yat-Sen University as a Lecturer supported by the “100 Talents Program” in the Department of Biomedical Engineering. Since spring 2014, he held an academic position in the School of Chemical Engineering of Nanjing University of Science & Technology. Feng developed several new micro/nano fibrous scaffolds by electrospinning, and has pioneered the application of electrospun fibers to bioartificial liver. His current research interests include the development of bio-inspired materials to improve tissue regeneration and works on advancing understanding the fundamental interaction between biomaterials and biological systems.
