Jie Huang joined the department in 2006 from University of Cambridge, where she was a senior research associate at the Department of Materials Science and Metallurgy. Jie gained a BSc in Material Science and Engineering at East China University of Science and Technology, P R China. She completed her PhD in Biomaterials at IRC in Biomedical Materials, Queen Mary, University of London in 1997. She is a Fellow of the Institute of Materials, Minerals and Mining.
Jie has over 20 years experience in the development of bioactive ceramics and composites for biomedical applications. She has published over 80 peer-reviewed papers and has been invited to contribute chapters for three books. Jie is a recipient of UK-China Fellowships for Excellence (2007), IADR / GSK Innovation in Oral Care Award (2010) and The Royal Society Brian Mercer Feasibility Award (2013). She pioneered the synthesis of nano-sized substituted apatites for novel coating technology, a new method of creating patterned bioactive/functional coatings has led to four fully granted patents in Europe/UK, USA and China.
