My scholarly track record illustrates successful mastery of a major challenge in an interdisciplinary field: the ability to transcend traditional disciplinary boundaries, to initiate and nurture excellent research and educational programs across different disciplines. This was achieved through an interdisciplinary research program via convergence of science & engineering (bioengineering, biomaterials science, computational modelling, chemistry and nanotechnology), the life science disciplines (molecular & cell biology, stem cell research, genomics, proteomics, bioinformatics), and clinical research (orthopedics, plastic and reconstructive surgery, radiology). I am one of the few academics who successfully translated tissue engineering research programs from fundamental research to routine clinical application.
