Chengxin Zhou, Ph.D.


ARVO Annual Meeting 2015 Travel Grant

Chengxin Zhou received his PhD degree in Biomedical Engineering from University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center in 2013. During his doctoral study, he investigated key mechanisms for corneal keratocyte migration, and extracellular matrix remodeling using in vivo and in vitro corneal wound healing models. His research also encompassed cellular biomechanics, cell force monitoring, biologic imaging, corneal tissue engineering. He also received Master of Science degree in Biomedical Engineering from Wayne State University in 2008.

In 2014, he started his research fellowship in Boston Keratoprosthesis Lab. His current projects focus on ophthalmic drug delivery device, ocular chemical burn, and keratoprosthesis.

PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication. Some publications (especially newer ones and publications not in PubMed) might not yet be assigned Field or Translation tags.) Click a Field or Translation tag to filter the publications.
