Hossein Hosseinkhani received his B.Eng. degree in chemical engineering from Polytechnique University and Ph.D. degree in polymer chemistry from Kyoto University in 2002. Thereafter, he was offered the prestigious JSPS Fellowship of Japan (2002–2004), at Institute for Frontier Medical Sciences, Kyoto University Hospital to extend his concepts and to develop stem cells technology based on drug delivery systems for tissue engineering applications. Hosseinkhani was selected as ICYS Research Fellow of Japan (2004–2008) because of his creative research in biomaterials science fields (ICYS: International Center for Young Scientists, Notational Institute for Materials Science). He was a Senior Research Fellow at the International Research Institute for Integrated Medical Sciences, Tokyo Women’s Medical University, Japan (2008-2009), and a Visiting Scientist at the Center for Biomedical Engineering, Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), USA (2007–2009). In August 2009, Hosseinkhani joined the Department of Biomedical Engineering, National Yang-Ming University, Taiwan, as an Associate Professor and thereafter at Graduate Institute of Biomedical Engineering, National Taiwan University of Science and Technology. His research interests include biomaterials, drug delivery systems, gene therapy, 3D in vitro systems, bioreactor technology, and bioengineering stem cells technology.
