Research Profile

Haowen Yang is a PhD candidate in the immunoengineering group under the supervision of Dr. Jurjen Tel. His research currently focuses on immune activation and signaling at single-cell and population level. By taking advantage of microfluidics, individual cell behavior can be investigated within designed artifical microenvironments. Probing cellular heterogeneity of immune response will reveal regulatory strategies for cellular decision-making.

Academic Background

Haowen Yang obtained his Bachelor’s degree in Veterinary Medicine at Shandong Agricultural University. He then received his Master’s degree in Animal Genetics, Breeding and Reproduction at Guangxi University. During this period, he was also a visiting scholar at Southeast University with a focus on Nanodiagnostics. He subsequently moved to the microfluidics group led by Prof. Dr. Andrew deMello at ETH Zurich, for research on microfluidic-based bioanalysis. Haowen continued with PhD research at TU/e in the immunoengineering group led by Dr. Jurjen Tel, aiming at single cell immune dynamics.
