Dr. Tianzhun Wu received his bachelor and master degree of engineering in 2002 and 2004 respectively from Tsinghua University, China,and pursued his doctoral degree from 2006 to 2009 in the University of Tokyo, Japan. He worked as the postdoctor fellow in the University of Tokyo and Osaka University, then the assistant professor in Sun Yat-sen University. Since 2013 he became the associate professor and the founding director of the Research Center of Micro/nano Systems and Bionic Medicine with Shenzhen Institutes of Advanced Technology, Chinese Academy of Sciences (SIAT-CAS), and was promoted as the full professor in 2016. He has research experiences of more than 18 years on multi-disciplinary micro/nano materials, fabrication and devices, and his research interests including BioMEMS, MicroTAS and neural modulation. He has published more than 40 SCI papers on international journals and more than 90 international conference papers. He has more than 40 granted patents of invention and more than 40 patents of invention pending, and more than 20 patents have been transferred for commercialization. He is the founder of a high-tech spin-off company working on medical devices.He was awarded the honor of excellent youth of Guangdong Natural Science Foundation and Shenzhen Peacock Personnel, and served as the IEEE MEMS TPC member(2018-), youth committee chairman of Branch of Digital Medicine, China International Exchange and Promotion Association for Medical and Healthcare (CPAM) , and youth councilman of the Chinese Society of Micro/Nano Technology. He was the executive director of next-generation high-resolution artificial retina funded by Guangdong province and Shenzhen government.The accumulated amount of his research grants exceeded 1.4 million USD.
