Biography: 

Xiaocheng Jiang is an assistant professor of biomedical engineering. Prior to joining Tufts, he was an American Cancer Society postdoctoral fellow at Harvard Medical School and Massachusetts General Hospital, where he worked with Professor Mehmet Toner on microfluidic isolation and characterization of circulating tumor cells for early cancer diagnostics. Jiang received his Ph.D. in physical chemistry (2011) from Harvard University with Professor Charles Lieber, with a focus on the design, development, and application of semiconductor nanowires and nanoelectronic devices. His research concentrates broadly at the interface of materials science and biomedical application, with specific interests in bio-inspired/bio-integrable electronics, biomaterials, and microfluidics.

Education: 
Ph.D., Physical Chemistry, Harvard University, 2011
B.S., Chemistry, Peking University, 2004
Professional Experience: 
2015:

Assistant Professor, Department of Biomedical Engineering, Tufts School of Engineering

2012-2015:

Postdoctoral Fellow, Center for Engineering in Medicine, Massachusetts General Hospital and Harvard Medical School

Research Interests: 

The Jiang Lab is interested in exploring the unique physics and chemistry at the interface between living and artificial systems, with top priorities on (1) developing small-scale platforms that can seamlessly integrate with cells/tissues for probing, interrogating, and directing biologically significant processes; and (2) pursuing bio-derived materials and bio-inspired approaches for a wide range of engineering applications such as energy harvest/storage, chemical sensing, and water treatment.
