2020-2024 Steering Committee Candidate:
Dr. Changsheng Liu is a Cheung Kong Scholar Professor of biomaterials, and President of Shanghai University. He also serves as the director of Engineering Research Center for Biomedical Materials of Ministry of Education, East China University of Science and Technology. Prof. Liu received a Ph.D. Degree in Chemical Engineering from East China University of Science and Technology (ECUST) in 1996. He is the chairman-elect of Chinese Society for Biomaterials. He is the Academician of Chinese Academy of Sciences(CAS), International Fellow of Biomaterials Science and Engineering (IFBSE), Fellow of American Institute for Medical and Biological Engineering (AIMBE).
His research interest includes bone regenerative biomaterials and nano-scaled biomedical materials. He has more than 300 refereed journal publications, 70 patents and invention disclosures, and 10 edited books/chapters. More importantly, with the leadership of Dr. Liu over the past 25 years, his team has established a track record of accomplishments, including three registered trademarks, a series of calcium phosphate cement (CPC)-based bone regeneration products, and 1 bio-engineered growth factor product. Up to now, various CPC-based products have been used in more than 500 hospitals nationwide, winning high acclaim for its excellent clinical performance. Recently, Prof. Liu has established the pioneering field of Materiobiology, which studies the biological effects of the properties of biomaterials on biological functions at cell, tissue, organ, and the whole organism levels. It focuses on the role of material biological characteristics to provide combinative bioactive cues, mediate life activities and regulate microenvironments, enabling us to create a database of biomaterial genome and build a theoretical framework for developing new materials.
Given the great social and economic benefits it has brought, Prof. Liu has earned lots of honors and awards, including second-prize winner of National Natural Science Award (China), second-prize winner of National Award for Science and Technology Progress (China), Ho Leung Ho Lee Foundation-Prize for Scientific and Technological Innovation Award, and silver prize for Innovation and Excellence of INPEX in Medicines (US). He also offered the editorial responsibilities for the many journals, including Associate Editor of Journal of Materials Science: Materials in Medicine, Editorial member of Scientific Report, Biomaterials Research, Journal of Orthopaedic Translation etc.
Vision & Purpose:
Prof. Liu has interdisciplinary academic background of biology and materials engineering. He has devoted for decades into the fundamental and application research of biological materials. He holds the excellent ability for developing clinical products according to the clinical needs: the in-depth study on related fundamental research, establishment alliances with academic institutions and international collaborations, and commercialization of products to clinical application. His background, expertise, and achievements have benefited the important significance of economy and health care in China. His research contributions and the successful experiences should deserve the high recognition internationally and will undoubtedly continue to benefit the medical and healthcare industry at home and abroad. For this reason, Prof. Liu should be enthusiastically nominated for steering committee for ICFBSE.
ICFBSE is an important international and academic organization that drives the development of biomaterials and their applications according to the objectives of the social and economic development. Prof. Liu hopes ICFBSE can become a platform for exchanging the innovative research ideas, increasing the international competitiveness and visibility, and promoting exchanges and cooperation with international biomaterials community.
