Since 2004, Dr. Liang developed his interests and career on orthopedic research as a Research Associate, and later Research Scientist, at the University of Virginia, Charlottesville Virginia. In 2013, Dr. Liang came to Feinstein Institutes for Medical Science. He is currently an instructor in the orthopedic research laboratory at the Feinstein Institutes for Medical Research.
Dr. Liang’s research focuses on tissue engineering studies for the repair of the musculoskeletal system. By using stem cells, combined with biological and engineering techniques, the diseases that cause the damage of bone, cartilage or tendon can be repaired. Dr. Liang dedicated his efforts to develop the ideas and methods to connect the discoveries from the basic science to the application of clinical therapies.
