Biographical details

Lifeng Kang is a Lecturer at the Sydney School of Pharmacy, University of Sydney. His laboratory is focused on microscale technologies for drug delivery and tissue engineering. In drug delivery, drug carriers can be precisely designed and fabricated with built-in micro-scale features to facilitate the controlled release of drugs into human tissue. In tissue engineering, micro-scale technologies are used to fabricate scaffolds with increased complexity to control the cellular microenvironment and enhance cell–cell, cell–matrix and cell–soluble factor interactions. Dr. Kang has published 47 peer-reviewed papers, 2 books, 59 abstracts and filed 5 patent applications. His work has been published in journals such as Journal of Controlled release, Pharmaceutical Research, Molecular Pharmaceutics, Journal of Pharmaceutical Sciences, International Journal of Pharmaceutics, and Journal of Biomedical Materials Research.

He is highly interested in innovation. One of his patents on miniaturized skin permeation testing device has been licensed to a local startup company. The company is now actively raising funds to commercialize the device for cosmeceutical compound skin permeation testing.

He is committed in training students. In his laboratory, he has supervised 7 postgraduate students. He teaches both undergraduate and postgraduate courses. He is also investigating the formative assessment and mastery learning in university educations.

Dr. Kang obtained his Ph.D. from the National University of Singapore (NUS) in 2006 on drug delivery. Afterwards he went to the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) to study tissue engineering by using micro-structured hydrogels. He returned to NUS in 2009 to work as a lecturer. In the summer of 2017, He joined Faculty of Pharmacy, University of Sydney as a lecturer. He studied hydrogels as drug carriers for his M.S. degree (2001) in China Pharmaceutical University where he completed his undergraduate study as well.

Research interests

We are focusing on the micro-scale technologies and its applications in drug delivery and tissue engineering. In drug delivery, microstructures can be engineered as carriers to deliver drugs in a reproducible manner and with temporal and spatial control. In tissue engineering, microscale technologies can be used to fabricate biomimetic scaffolds with increased complexity and vascularization to control the cellular microenvironment.

Teaching and supervision

During the past 7 years, I have supervised 7 postgraduate students and 42 undergraduate students in research. For coursework, I teach both undergraduate and postgraduate modules. For pedagogical research, my interest is on the formative assessment and mastery learning in university educations. The courses I taught include drug delivery, formulation sciences and pharmaceutical analysis.
