Yongsung Hwang, Ph.D.

 

Dr. Yongsung Hwang is an associate professor in Soonchunhyang Institute of Medi-bio Science (SIMS) at Soonchunhyang University. He received a Ph.D. degree in Materials Science and Engineering from UC San Diego and he did his postdoctoral training in the Department of Bioengineering at UC San Diego. His current research interest is to understand the roles of cell-matrix/cell-cell interactions on controlling the lineage-specific fate determination of human pluripotent stem cells into functional musculoskeletal progenitors through biomaterial-based physiochemical cues along with soluble cues. Beyond fundamental understandings of artificial ECM-based cues to stem cells, his team also focuses on developing multifunctional 3D biomimetic materials as bioengineered niche by leveraging 3D bioprinting techniques for regenerative and tissue engineering applications.  [Publication List]
