Glad to share our recent review on collagen-based biomaterials in neural tissue engineering, covering different manufacturing strategies, therapeutic potentials, challenges, and future prospects. Many thanks to our collaborator Prof. Mingzhu Zhang and students, including Shenglong Ding, Kai Li, and Xiyuan Zhao.

Been a while since I hopped on Twitter! Got so wrapped up in paperwork for all these hefty projects that I totally forgot to share the snaps from those two cover articles @BioactiveMat @AdvSciNews that went live a while back! 😄Check them out!


Great opportunity👍👍, the software and hardware environment are very good. @ArnoldLiningJu @SnowMedical @USYDBME

Happy to share our recent work published online in @BioactiveMat, focusing on the 3D movement of cells across interfaces. Looking forward to our future work on the complex and organized movement of multiple cell types in #biofabrication.

Glad to share our lastest #biomaterials papers online in **Materials Today Bio** @MaterialsToday. One develops microcarriers for large-scale stem cell culture, while the other reviews collagen based engineering in neural tissues.;


Wrapped up 5d in NZ for @ASBTE1 & workshop. Catching up with old & new friends was amazing! Huge thanks to @Khoonono & @Tim_WoodfieldNZ for organizing. Excited upcoming visists to USYD @ArnoldLiningJu & UOW @GordonGWallace @IPRI_UOW before heading home. THX for hosting🙏🙏🙏!


Glad to share our latest publication in Adv Mater @AdvSciNews on lacuna-inspired #microcarriers for #cartilage regeneration! Big thanks to Dr. Zhang for medical expertise. Excited for the next step of #bioprinting.

Happy Chinese New Year of the Rabbit to ALL FRIENDS. 🎇🎇🎇Wish You A New Year Filled With Peace, Love, Joy & Happiness.

Thank you, Chinese Society of Stem Cell Research (CSSCR) for giving me the Outstanding Young Investigator Award. Delighted to be recognized for my work on stem cell printing and bioinspired engineering.🧐

Abstract submissions now open for ASBTE2023 🤓 Looking forward to this conference in Christchurch next year! @DrAnnaW_lab @JelenaRnjak @Tim_WoodfieldNZ @ASBTE1 @Khoonono @Vipul_syd @DomiganLaura

Glad to share our recent work online in Adv Sci, which took almost 5 years. Bioinspired structures control extraembryonic cell migration and firstly extend embryo culture to E8.5. Thank Adv Sci for the fast and efficient peer review process. @AdvSciNews

Happy Chinese New Year of the TIGER to ALL FRIENDS. 🎇🎇Wish You A New Year Filled With Peace, Love, Joy & Happiness.
P.S Nice #GoogleDoodle @Google

Glad to share our recent #bioprinting work published on @Biofabrication to put insights into what happens in 3D printed skeletal muscles and how to control cell movement in 3D. Thank Prof Ng Shyh-Chang for the collaboration. via @IOPscience

Great event with excellent speakers @shrikezhang @Santos_Lab15 @UtaGoebel There is still a chance to register😁😁

Challenge The Impossible

GU LAB seeks to develop novel biomaterials and advanced technologies including 3D/4D bioprinting to regulate cell fate spatiotemporally, fabricate 3D organs  functionally, and create therapeutic methods meaningfully according to the mechanism of developmental biology and in turn deepen the understanding of what is life.
