Annual Awards Gala 2011

Xinqiao Jia
Presenting the Academic Research Award to Dr. Xinqiao Jia was Dr. Kelvin Lee, director of the Delaware Biotechnology Institute and Delaware Bio board member. Dr. Jia, an associate professor at the University of Delaware in the Department of Materials Science and Engineering, was recognized for her research at the University of Delaware in the areas of drug delivery and tissue engineering.


Biotech Leaders Call for Funding

Others recognized were former Democratic U.S. senator from Delaware Ted Kaufman; retired Alfred I. duPont Hospital for Children chief executive Tom Ferry; University of Delaware professor Xinqiao Jia, who leads a research team developing materials for functional tissue repair; and Charles Saller, president of Wilmington-based contract pharmaceutical research company Analytical Biological Services.


UD's Xinqiao Jia Recognized for Biomaterials Research

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. "Professor Jia is one of our brightest young faculty members. Jia is a 2010 recipient of the DuPont Young Professor Award and was named an Outstanding Junior Faculty in UD's College of Engineering the same year. She received her bachelor's degree in applied chemistry and master's degree in polymer chemistry and physics from Fudan University in Shanghai. Jia earned her doctoral degree in polymer science and engineering from the University of Massachusetts at Amherst.

Xinqiao Jia
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.
