Mingde (Jack) Zheng received his B.S. degree in Biomedical Engineering with a focus in Bio-Instrumentation from the University of Texas at Austin in 2010. Later, he received his Master of Engineering and Ph.D. degrees also in Biomedical Engineering from Rutgers University in New Jersey. His graduate research focused on the design, fabrication and modeling of Lab-On-Chip micro-devices and their integration with on-board electronics for clinical diagnosis, biological sensing, Drug delivery, treatment of diseases and supportive cell/tissue culturing. Jack also collaborated on a number of different projects with researchers from Chemistry, Aerospace, Mechanical, and Material Science and Engineering departments. His research interests include developing human-centered electrical sensing systems, point-of-care-based diagnostic sensors for continuous, in-body biochemistry monitoring, creating functionally smart biomaterials as well as therapeutic treatment deployment strategies.
