Post-Doctoral Fellow, Human Health Therapeutics Research Centre, National Research Council of Canada
Betty Li received her bachelor’s degree in Engineering Science major in Nanoengineering, University of Toronto. Followed by Masters of Engineering Science in Chemical and Biochemical Engineering at Western University. She then focused her PhD on natural polymer based biomaterials synthesis and characterization for tissue regeneration and biomedical devices. She is currently a post-doctoral fellow in the Human Health Therapeutics Research Center at the National Research Council of Canada. She is involved in developing Organ-on-Chip blood brain barrier (BBB) model platform by integrating human stem cell technologies, 3D bioprinting, synthetic biomaterials, microfluidic design and microfabrication to recapitulate the structural and functional complexity of the human BBB in vitro.
