Fan Zhang (she/her/hers) is a postdoc at UW in the Department of Bioengineering. Fan received a B.E. at Zhejiang Science and Technology University, China and a M.S. at North Carolina State University. She then received her Ph.D. degree in Fiber and Polymer Science in Dr. Martin King’s lab at North Carolina State University, engineering immunomodulatory biomaterials for tissue-engineered vascular graft. Fan’s current research focuses on understanding the mechanism underlying biomaterial-induced vascularization and the vascularization of engineered tissue and organ.
