Researcher biography

Dr Yinghong Zhou is a Senior Research Fellow leading the Translational ImmunoEngineering for Regenerative Dentistry research team at the School of Dentistry. Dr Zhou obtained her PhD in Biomedical Engineering from the Queensland University of Technology (QUT) in 2013. Dr Zhou seeks to understand the mechanisms for bone repair and regeneration, with a particular interest in stem cell therapy and biomaterial application. Much of her past and current research work has utilised animal models to investigate the pathophysiology and treatment of bone-related diseases. She has been awarded a prestigious NHMRC Early Career Fellowship (2016-2020) to investigate cell signalling cues involved in periodontal tissue regeneration, as well as a Endeavour Research Fellowship (2017) for a collaborative project on dissecting the role of DMP1 in cell transformation at Texas A&M University College of Dentistry. Dr Zhou was appointed as the Coordinator of the Australia–China Centre for Tissue Engineering and Regenerative Medicine (ACCTERM) in 2013, then Deputy Director in 2016 and has worked in the role since.
