Dr. Fang Yang
Radboud University Medical Center, the Netherlands
Dr. Fang Yang is a biomaterial scientist and interested in the development and evaluation of novel biomaterials-based approaches for tissue regeneration and the controlled delivery of drugs or growth factors. She obtained her PhD degree from National University of Singapore in 2005 under supervision of Prof. Seeram Ramakrishna. After that she joined Prof. John Jansen’s group at Department of Biomaterials in Radboud University Medical Centre in the Netherlands until now. Her current research focuses on the development of nanofibers or nanoparticles as extracellular matrix with incorporation of therapeutic agents for bone and periodontal tissue regeneration. She is also interested in local drug delivery to prevent implant associated infections. Her expertise lies in biopolymers and biocomposites, electrospinning technique and biomaterials characterization (both physico-chemical and biological evaluation). She has published more than 70 journal articles and served as a peer reviewer for about 10 journals in the related field.
