Professor Guan joined Washington University in St. Louis in August 2018. He was a professor, associate professor and assistant professor of materials science and engineering at the Ohio State University since 2007. He joined Ohio State after serving as a research assistant professor at the Department of Surgery and McGowan Institute for Regenerative Medicine in the University of Pittsburgh.
Professor Guan’s research interests are in functional biomaterials and microenvironments for cell and drug delivery; oxygen sensitive biomaterials for non-invasively and real time imaging and detecting tissue oxygen during vascularization therapy; and cardiovascular, skin, and musculoskeletal tissue regeneration. His research covers regenerative medicine, polymer, drug delivery, nanomedicine, stem cell, biomechanics, surgery, and biomedical imaging fields.
