Xian Jun Loh is currently a research scientist at the Institute of Materials Research and Engineering (IMRE) and an assistant professor at the National University of Singapore (NUS). He is also concurrently an adjunct scientist at the Singapore Eye Research Institute. He graduated with a Ph.D. in 2009 from the National University of Singapore (NUS). He was awarded the National Science Talent Search Award in 1999; Agency for Science, Technology and Research (A*STAR) National Science Scholarship in 2002 (undergraduate studies); and A*STAR Graduate Scholarship in 2007 (postgraduate studies). He obtained a B.Appl.Sc. (first Class Hons) in Applied Chemistry from NUS in 2006. After a one year attachment stint at IMRE, he continued his Ph.D. studies in 2007. In 2011, he was elected into the Fellowship at Fitzwilliam College, Cambridge. He is the coeditor of an RSC-published book entitled “Polymeric and Self-Assembled Hydrogels: From Fundamental Understanding to Applications”. His main interests are in the design of supramolecular and stimuli-responsive polymers and hydrogels for biomedical applications. Currently, he is the author and coauthor of 51 journal papers and five patents, publishing mainly in the area of biomaterials.
