Personal profile


Dr Jing Fu received M.Eng/Ph.D. from the Pennsylvania State University, USA in 2008, with concentration on developing nano/microfabrication processes for biomedical applications. From 2008 to 2010, he was awarded a postdoctoral fellowship by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) to continue his research towards novel cell imaging. Dr Fu joined the Faculty of Engineering in 2010.

Dr Fu's research interests are to combine nanoengineering tools, particularly charged particle beams to solve the structural and chemical maps, and to understand various interactions at cell-material interfaces. Working with a multidisciplinary team, he has been developing Focused Ion Beam (FIB) technology for imaging and manipulating single cells. The recent research highlights include 3D visualization of HIV viral entry from dendritic cell to T-cell, the crucial step in HIV infection cycle, and the first compositional maps of mammalian cell interiors. Dr Fu has more than 5 years experience in FIB/SEM/TEM and other surface techniques in both routine and cryogenic environments. He is currently the principle scientist working on new approaches to investigate the dynamics of nanomaterials in human immune cells, a collaborative project with researchers in Monash, CSIRO MCN and Australian Synchrotron.
