Ting-Yuan Tu, Assistant Professor, Department of Biomedical Engineering, National Cheng Kung University

Ting-Yuan (TY) TU is currently an Assistant Professor at Department of Biomedical Engineering at National Cheng Kung University (NCKU) in Taiwan. In collaboration with Singapore-MIT Alliance for Research and Technology Centre (SMART), he received his Ph.D. in Mechanobiology from National University of Singapore in 2015, in Singapore. Prior to joining NCKU, he was an Application Scientist at Clearbridge Biomedics, in which his role was focused on developing downstream assays for analysis of circulating tumor cells (CTCs) isolated from patients’ peripheral blood. In addition to studies on CTCs, another aspect of his current research interest lies in the development of better biomimetic tumor microenvironment for cancer drug discovery, such as in vitro tumor models and 3D tumor invasive co-culture microfluidic platforms.
