Dr. Jiabing Fan obtained his Ph.D. in Stem Cells and Tissue Engineering at Sun Yat-sen University, China in 2010. While completing his Ph.D., he served as a visiting graduate scholar in Bioengineering at Nanyang Technological University in Singapore (2008-2009). From 2010 to 2015, he received his postdoctoral training at Harvard University and UCLA. After that, he worked as Project Scientist/Assistant Adjunct Professor at UCLA.

Dr. Fan has a broad research background in stem cells, tissue engineering, drug/gene delivery, biomaterials, and molecular pharmaceutics. He has received the Outstanding Mentorship Award at UCLA, the Peter Geistlich Research Award from the Osteo Science Foundation, and was the Joseph Lister Award for New Investigators runner-up at the 2022 AADOCR/CADR Annual Meeting. He has published over 39 peer-reviewed articles, several of which are in high caliber journals (e.g., ACS Nano, Biomaterials, Advanced Functional Materials, Science Advances, Stem Cells Translational Medicine). His h-index is currently 24 with total citations >2000.

Dr. Fan’s research focuses on translating genetic and molecular findings to developing novel therapeutic approaches for craniofacial bone repair and regeneration, as well as age-related bone loss disease treatment. Dr. Fan applies advancements in stem cells and nanotechnologies to the creation of effective molecular therapies for potential clinical osteoporosis treatment. His research has been supported by multiple funding agencies such as NIDCR/NIH, etc.
