Ying Yang completed his Ph.D. degree at The University of Manchester, UK, in materials science and technology in 1994. Yang took up a postdoctoral research fellowship in Tokyo Institute of Technology after the Ph.D. study and joined Keele University from 1997 until now. Yang was appointed a Reader in biomaterials and tissue engineering in 2009. Yang's main research interests are in regenerative medicine covering the activities in two areas: fabrication/application of multifunctional biomaterials for tissue engineering (cornea, bone, tendon, nerve, and cartilage) and exploitation of online, nondestructive characterization techniques to monitor three-dimensional scaffolds and tissues and construct behavior in vitro and in vivo. The main facilities kept and used in the group include electrospinning, optical coherence tomography, long work distance microscope, polarization microscope, FTIR, TGA/DSC, and various bioreactors. At the moment, Yang supervises (cosupervises) 6 Ph.D. students and couple of master students under UK research council and charity funding.
