Yen-Ting Tung's Biography



Yen-Ting Tung, Research Fellow, National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences (NCATS)

Dr. Tung is a postdoctoral fellow in National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences (NCATS), National Institutes of Health (NIH). His study mainly focuses on developing 3D vascularized brain models by bioprinting for high throughput screening and won the NIH Fellows Award for Research Excellence (FARE) in 2019 and 2020. Dr. Tung completed a B.S. in department of Biomedical Science and Environmental Biology at Kaohsiung Medical University, Taiwan. He then earned his M.S. and ph.D. in department of Life Science and program of Tissue Engineering and Regenerative Medicine at National Chung Hsing university, Taiwan. His ph. D. study was focus on developing a microvascular network with customized pattern by microfabrication of biodegradable scaffolds.

Through 3D bioprinted technology, we are developing a 3D bioprinted human neurovascular unit (NVU) in a 96-multiwell plate format to be used as a tissue-in-a-well assay platform for high through-put screening (HTS). This 3D NVU contains endothelial cells/pericytes/astrocytes which was bioprinted precisely on a well with a ring-shaped pattern. The ring shape geometry facilitates the quantitation of vasculogenic as well as angiogenesis by measuring the microvessels branching inward in the ring using endothelial cells expressing GFP and fluorescence-based high content imaging readers. This bioprinted vascularized NVU provide a robust tissue in as well model for screening and it has the versatility to increase its cellular and functional complexity by including additional neuronal or by including additional neuronal or immune cells inside the printed tissue.
