Brief Biography

Dr. Cheng-Hsien Liu received his Ph.D. degree from in Mechanical Engineering from Stanford University. Since Autumn 2000, he had been with National Tsing Hua University, Taiwan, Republic of China, as an assistant professor in the Power Mechanical Engineering Department and a joint faculty member in the Institute of Nano Engineering and Micro Systems. Presently he is a professor in the Power Mechanical Engineering Department and Institute of NanoEngineering and MicroSystems at National Tsing Hua University. He had served as the Chairman of International Intercollegiate Ph.D. Program  March 2015 through July 2016. In 1999-2000, he worked as a senior Electrical Engineer at Halo Data Devices Inc., San Jose, where he focuses on the development of micro-drives for portable information storage applications. While at Stanford, he worked with Dr. Kenny at Stanford Micro-structures and Sensors Laboratory and focused his Ph.D. work on high-performance MEMS sensors. He currently oversees graduate students in the Micro-Systems and Control Laboratory, whose research activities cover a variety of areas in MicroElectroMechanical Systems, System Dynamics/Modeling/Control and Nanotechnology such as biomimetic array chip for bio-object manipulation targeting for tissue engineering/ drug screening applications, Bio Lab on a chip, Micro Total Analysis Systems, Liver on Lab Chip, Biomedical Instruments, microphotonics, and advanced tunable MEMS grating for optical communication applications, and microsystem robust/optimal control. He received A. Kobayashi Young Investigator Award in Experimental Science from International Conference on Computational and Experimental Engineering and Sciences in 2010, the award of Outstanding Chemical Engineering Article of the Year 2010, Outstanding Research Program Award from National Science and Technology Program in the Biomedical field (2012), 2011 Outstanding Research Award from National Science Council (NSC) in 2012 (100年度國科會傑出研究獎), etc. Recently he receives multi-year research fund from the 2021 Engineering-Technology Leap Program from Ministry of Science and Technology, Taiwan, R.O.C. (獲科技部工程司『110年度工程科技中堅躍升研究計畫』) This Engineering-Technology Leap Program aims to boost elite mature scholars and promote top research scholars to obtain breakthrough and state-of-the-art research results in the field of engineering and technology. He also receives multi-year research funds of Interdisciplinary Integration of Advanced Medical Technology (Medical+X) Program (跨界整合前瞻醫療科技(醫療+X)計畫) 2021~2023. He collaborates with Dr. Lee, Associate Dean of TMU Shuang Ho Hospital, on “Organ on Chip-New generation of drug screening system” and Organ on LabChip- Lung-on-chips” to win 2021 Future Tech Awards (與北醫雙和醫院李岡遠副院長合組研發團隊,合作藥物測試篩選應用之器官組織晶片,獲科技部 『2021 年未來科技獎』) and National Innovation Award (Taiwan Healthcare) 2021 (肺癌組織器官晶片獲『第十八屆國家新創獎-學研新創獎』), respectively. He received The 1st place Award 2021for 2021 Program Review of MOST Automation Engineering Program (The 1st place Award for our funded project: TIIC auto-sorting and culturing miniaturized systems combining image AI-machine -learning recognition/counting for personal cancer-immunotherapy applications) (科技部工程司自動化學門2021年計畫成果競賽 -特優). He collaborates with Dr. Lee at Taipei Medical University on “Organ on chip: a New Drug Screening Platform as an Alternative for Patients” receiving 2021 “Grass Roots” Award from Boehringer Ingelheim “Grass Roots” Support Program in Taiwan-  one of 6 awarded Teams selected from 169 competing teams (獲百靈佳殷格翰「生醫新創獨角獸Grass Roots支持計畫」, 169個團隊中六個獲獎團隊之一,與北醫李岡遠醫師共組之研發新創創業團隊) (short video) (link 1) (link 2)(link 3).
