Xinqiao Jia
Associate Professor of Materials Science and Engineering
University of Delaware
Xinqiao Jia is an Associate Professor of Materials Science and Engineering (MSE) and Biomedical Engineering (BME) at the University of Delaware. She received her B.S. in Applied Chemistry from Fudan University in China in 1995 and her Ph.D. in Polymer Science and Engineering from the University of Massachusetts Amherst in 2002 in the laboratory of Professor Thomas McCarthy. She conducted her postdoctoral training with Professor Robert Langer at MIT prior to joining the University of Delaware in 2005. Dr. Jia serves as the Graduate Program Chair for both MSE and BME and is affiliated with several centers and institutes at the University of Delaware, including the Center for Translation Cancer Research and Delaware Biotechnology Institute. Dr. Jia's current research is focused on the design, synthesis and characterization of polymeric materials with controlled architectures and functionalities for biomedical applications. Her research activities are currently supported by National Science Foundation and National Institutes of Health and the DuPont Company. She received the National Science Foundation CAREER Award in 2006 to develop mechano-responsive biomaterials. Dr. Jia has been recognized as an Outstanding Junior Faculty of Engineering and DuPont Young Professor in 2010. She received the Delaware BioScience Association's Academic Award in 2011. She was the Thematic Program Chair of the 244th American Chemical Society (ACS) National Meeting & Exposition. Work from the Jia group has been featured at the Excellence in Graduate Polymer Research Symposium at ACS National Meetings.

Xinqiao Jia, UD assistant ..., 8 Mar 2007 [cached]
Xinqiao Jia, UD assistant professor of materials science and engineering, is leading the project.
According to Jia, the vocal cords are more accurately defined as "vocal folds."
"The reduction of vocal-fold scarring remains a significant therapeutic challenge," Jia said.
Jia and her colleagues want to explore two parallel tissue-engineering approaches to regenerate the lamina propria.One method focuses on injecting gelatin-like materials, composed of soft, strong and long-lasting hydrogels, into damaged tissue to improve its pliability and prevent scar formation.
In the second approach, the scientists want to form functional tissue from a combination of vocal fold connective tissue cells (fibroblasts), artificial extracellular matrix, and biological cues and mechanical stimuli that capture the mechanical and biological characteristics of the natural organs.
"In order to grow a functional tissue in vitro, you need to provide the cells with a biological and physical environment that is as close to that of the natural tissue as possible," Jia said.
To mimic the complex and rigorous movement experienced by vocal fold tissue, the researchers have constructed a bioreactor capable of delivering well-defined vibrational and tensile stresses.
The device, which Jia designed, simulates the demanding, high-frequency environment in which vocal fold cells live, vibrating back and forth at up to 100 hertz (100 times a second).Not only do the vocal folds collide as they open and close, driven by air from the lungs, they also must be able to elongate as the pitch of the voice changes, a movement that occurs at a much slower frequency of 1-2 hertz (1-2 times a second), according to Jia.
"The combination of vocal fold fibroblasts, elastic and bioactive artificial extracellular matrices, and a dynamic bioreactor offers an exciting opportunity for in vitro tissue engineering of vocal fold lamina propria," Jia noted.
Earlier this year, Jia received the National Science Foundation's Faculty Early Career Development Award.The highly competitive award is bestowed on those scientists deemed most likely to become the academic leaders of the 21st century.
Jia received her bachelor's degree in applied chemistry and master's degree in polymer chemistry and physics from Fudan University in Shanghai, China, and a doctoral degree in polymer science and engineering from the University of Massachusetts at Amherst.
UD's Xinqiao Jia Recognized for Biomaterials Research, 21 Mar 2011 [cached]
Xinqiao Jia, assistant professor in the University of Delaware's Department of Materials Science and Engineering and the Department of Biological Sciences, is developing intelligent biomaterials that closely mimic the molecular composition, biological function, mechanical responsiveness and nanoscale organization of the natural matrices surrounding the cells.
This biomimetic approach allows Jia to construct a three-dimensional microenvironment that will improve the understanding of cell biology and aid in the engineering of intelligent nanoparticles for targeted delivery and controlled release of cancer therapeutics.
"Combining cell biology and engineering principles, we are actively developing methodologies for the engineering of healthy replacement tissues such as cartilage and vocal folds, as well as pathological tissues such as tumor tissues," Jia explained.
The polymeric nanoparticles her group has developed are being evaluated as nanocarriers for anticancer drugs. The ultimate goal is to enhance the efficacy of the drugs while minimizing their debilitating side effects.
For her novel approach, Jia will receive the Academic Research Award at the Delaware BioScience Association's (Delaware Bio) 2011 Annual Awards Gala on April 11, to be held in Wilmington, Del. The award recognizes significant contributions to the advancement of life science research at an academic or medical research institution in Delaware.
A previous recipient of the National Science Foundation's Faculty Early Career Development Award, Jia was nominated by fellow faculty member S. Ismat Shah.
