        Dr. Yu-Chieh Chiu completed his B.S. in National Taiwan University of Science and Technology in Taiwan (2003), his M.S. in chemical engineering at Illinois Institute of Technology (2007), and Ph.D. in biomedical engineering at Illinois Institute of Technology (2011). In 2012, Dr. Chiu joined Dr. Mikos' research group in the Department of Bioengineering at Rice University as a postdoctoral research associate.

        Dr. Chiu was mentored by Dr. Eric M. Brey (Department of Biomedical Engineering, Illinois institute of Technology), and focused on following two areas as described in detail below: 1) novel techniques for the generation of poly (ethylene glycol) (PEG)-based hydrogels, and 2) optimization of cell-substrate interactions for stimulating neovascularization.

        His research activities have resulted in 8 peer-reviewed publications (5 as first author). His current research focuses on developing scaffolds for spatially directed growth factor delivery and osteochondral repair.
