Creating Biomedical Technologies to Improve Health


Ya-Ling Chiang, Ph.D.

Postdoc Fellow Visiting Fellow

BG 13 RM 3N18A, 13 South Dr. Bethesda, MD 20814



Dr. Chiang received M.S. degrees in Biophotonics Engineering from National Yang-Ming University in Taiwan. After graduation, she entered Nonlinear Laboratory for developing the surface plasma resonance biosensor application on examination of Bacteria drug resistance. Later, Dr. Chiang obtained her Ph.D. degree from Material Science Engineering in National Tsing-Hua University in 2016. During her period pursuing her Ph.D., she joined the Surface and NanoScience Laboratory in Institute of Physics, Academia Sinica and collaborated with other institutes for interdisciplinary research. In her dissertation she applied several AFM modes on high resolution imaging of macromolecular dynamic and interaction with different substrates under air and liquid environment for the purpose of nanomedicine research.
