Will Wenmiao Shu is the Hay Professor in Biomedical Engineering at the University of Strathclyde (Glasgow). He obtained his PhD at the University of Cambridge. Following his postdoctoral work at Cambridge University, he worked at Heriot-Watt University in Edinburgh's School of Engineering and Physical Sciences as a lecturer (2007-2012) and a Reader (2012-2016). His research interests cover a range of biomedical engineering topics including 3D biofabrication, biosensors, microsystems and their applications for regenerative medicine. He led the research to demonstrate the first bioprinting of human embryonic stem cells (h-ESCs) and human induced pluripotent stem cells (h-iPSCs), paving the way for their applications on animal-free drug testing and 3D printed organs. He was one of the founding members (and now an emeritus member) of Royal Society of Edinburgh’s Young Academy and held a visiting position at Stanford University. He is an editorial board member for IOP Biofabrication Journal and serves as a board director of the International Society for Biofabrication (ISBF).
