Dr Jingjing Li is a Senior Postdoctoral Fellow at the Graduate School of Biomedical Engineering. She is working with A/Prof Robert Nordon on a CRC-P project developing an automated microscale bioreactor for cell and gene therapy.
Being trained as a biomedical engineer, she developed multidiscipline skills spans from microfluidics, developmental biology, and bioinformatics. Her PhD and Post-Doctoral research focus on studying the influence of pulsatile fluid shear stress on human embryonic blood formation using microfluidic model mimicking foetal circulation, live cell imaging of hPSC differentiation and single-cell RNA sequencing of developing blood niches.
Her research interests are developing microfluidic organ-on-a-chip models and their applications in the expansion, maturation and engraftment of blood stem and progenitor cells generated from human pluripotent stem cells (hPSCs) for clinical therapies.
