Assistant Professor of Chemical Engineering
Dr. Julie Liu received her B.S. in chemical engineering from Princeton University. She was awarded a Whitaker Graduate Fellowship and worked with David Tirrell at the California Institute of Technology. Her doctoral research examined the cellular response to protein-based scaffolds designed for small-diameter vascular grafts. After obtaining her Ph.D. in chemical engineering, she received an NIH postdoctoral fellowship to study skeletal biology with Jane Lian and Gary Stein in the department of cell biology at the University of Massachusetts Medical School.
Dr. Liu's research interests include tissue engineering, stem cell biology, and regenerative medicine. Her research goals include engineering biomimetic materials that direct differentiation of stem cells into skeletal cell fates.
