Claire Jeong Named to the 2015 Tissue Engineering Young Investigator Council

Claire Gayoung Jeong, Ph.D., a research fellow at Wake Forest Institute for Regenerative Medicine, is one of nine young scientists around the world named to the 2015 Tissue Engineering Young Investigator Council. The initiative allows young investigators to work closely with other members of the publications’ editorial board, to establish relationships with experts in the field and to gain insight and experience in the manuscript peer-review process. Tissue Engineering received more than 450 applications to serve on the council. Each student will be assigned five to six papers for peer review, and, along with the other council members, will organize an exclusive Young Investigator Council special issue.

Originally from Seoul, Korea, Jeong earned a bachelor’s degree in biomedical engineering from Johns Hopkins University and a master’s/doctoral degree at the University of Michigan-Ann Arbor with a concentration in tissue engineering and biomaterials. She completed post-doctoral training at Duke University before joining Wake Forest in 2013. She has been involved in engineering a wide variety of tissues, from fat, cartilage and bone to skin and lung.

The application process is open to researchers who have been awarded their doctoral degree in the past three years and work at an academic institution in the field of tissue engineering and regenerative medicine.
