Biographical Sketch

Chao Lin got his MSc. at Nankai University (Tianjin, China) in 2003. He then went to the Department of Biomedical Chemistry (Department of Polymer Chemistry and Biomaterials), University of Twente (Enschede, The Netherlands) to pursue his Ph.D. degree under supervision of Prof. dr. Johan F. J. Engbersen and Prof. dr. Jan Feijen. His Ph.D. study concerns biodegradable cationic polymers as non-viral vectors for gene transfer, from which results his Ph.D. defense in April 2008. Thereafter, Chao Lin stayed in University of Twente until early 2009 as a senior scientist for postdoctoral research.  Chao Lin has so far authored or co-authored more than 10 research articles published in peer-reviewed journals and 1 book chapter. He was awarded the 2007 Chinese Government Award for Outstanding Self-Financed Students Abroad. Chao Lin’s research interest lies in biomaterials and controlled drug delivery. His current research is on polymer-based carriers for efficient nucleic acid (or protein) delivery and cancer therapy.
