Post Doctoral Researchers

Xiaoshan Yue

Xiaoshan earned her BS and MS degree in biology from Tsinghua University in China.  She get her Ph.D. degree in Bimolecular Engineering from Tokyo Institute of Technology in Japan.  In the meanwhile, she also worked in RIKEN as a Junior researcher in Nano Medical Engineering.  She did her postdoctoral training in proteomics and phosphoproteomics using mass spectrometry technique in University of Notre Dame.  Her research interest is integrating biological, bimolecular, bioengineering, and analytical chemistry methodologies to study mechanisms in life science.  She is currently working on establishing mammary gland-on-chip to unraveling the crosstalk between tumor and tumor microenvironment in controlled microsystems using hydrogel-based microwell array system and hydrogel-based micro channel system.  She is also studying the effect of aging ECM on cardiomyocyte functions.

Trung DungTrung Dung Nyugen

Trung Dung received his Bachelor Degree of Mechanical Engineering at Ho Chi Minh City University of Technology, Vietnam and Master of Engineering Degree at University of Malaya, Malaysia. Trung Dung earned his PhD at Queensland University of Technology, Australia under the supervision of Prof Yuantong Gu. His research interests include cell biomechanics, Finite Element Analysis (FEA), and Atomic Force Microscopy (AFM). Trung Dung joined the Zorlutuna Lab in Feb 2016 and is currently working on mechanical coupling and signal propagation in cardiac cells using bio-nanoindenter and FEA.
