Dr Junxi Wu

Strathclyde Chancellor's Fellow

Biomedical Engineering

Personal statement

My research focuses on using multi-disciplinary approaches to develop bio-artificial blood vessel, vascularised bio-artificial organ, and relevant applications in regenerative medicine including vascular reconstruction surgery, organ regeneration and innovative drug screen platform.



A fully funded PhD studentship on tissue engineering is now open to application. The dead line is 1st March 2020. More details in the following link.
