Glad to share our lastest series of advancements in #microphysiological constructs and systems: a review (), a biofab database (http://data.iscr.ac.cn/mmdb/, https://doi.org/10.36922/ijamd.2420), and a model for evaluating bioartificial organ
(https://pubs.rsc.org/en/content/articlelanding/2024/lc/d3lc01020a).

Happy Chinese New Year of the Dragon to ALL FRIENDS. 🎇🎇🎇🧨🧨🧨May your new year be filled with peace, love, joy, and happiness.

Honored to have received a Judges' Commendation for 2023 Australia China Alumni Award for Research and Science. Grateful for the nomination by @UOW and the unwavering support from my former supervisor, @GordonGWallace. #ACAA
