Biographical details

Dr Zufu Lu joined the group of Tissue Engineering and Biomaterials Research Unit, School of AMME at the University of Sydney, as a postdoctoral research fellow in 2009. In 2011 he was awarded an Early Career Fellow (ECR) by NHMRC, Australia, and in 2014 he became a Lecturer in the School of Aerospace, Mechanical and Mechatronic Engineering.

Research interests

Dr Zufu Lu researches the factors involved in tissue microenvironments that are necessary for repair and regeneration, so he can recreate these microenvironments for tissue engineering repair and regeneration. This mainly includes understanding how the biological, chemical and physical factors in natural bone and cartilage tissue microenvironments affect the differentiation fate of mesenchymal stem cells and their underlying molecular mechanisms, with particular interest in understanding the contributions of cellular and extracellular matrix components.
