Dr. Pan Houwen Matthew received his PhD in Biomedical Engineering from National University of Singapore (NUS), 2016. During his PhD, he was also funded by DAAD for a 1-year Research Exchange in University of Bayreuth, Germany. He is currently a Research Fellow in Nanyang Technological University (NTU) working with a multidisciplinary team of researchers including engineers, cell biologists, and polymer chemists on innovations in the field of bioengineering. In his research career, he has worked on and led a multitude of research projects such as the development of biomaterials for bioprinting, cell encapsulation, delivery of therapeutics, and the synthesis of stimuli-responsive materials for 4D printing. As a young researcher, he has authored more than 10 articles in prestigious journals such as Advanced Functional Materials, ACS Applied Materials and Interfaces, and Biofabrication, 2 book chapters, 2 patents related to IP in the field of 3D bioprinting and cell encapsulation, and several conference papers. He is a recipient of the NUS Research Scholarship (2011), DAAD Research Scholarship (2014), and DTU’s H.C. Ørsted COFUND (2019).
