Biosketch sample Doctor Chih-Chin Hsu
Dr. Chih-Chin Hsu was born in 1966 in Taiwan. He obtained his MD degree
in Department of Medicine, College of Medicine, National Taiwan University,
Taiwan, in 1992. After 4-year resident training in the National Taiwan University
Hospital, he served in the Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation,
Chang Gung Memorial Hospital, Linkou, Taiwan. He won his PhD degree in the
Graduate Institute of Clinical Medical Sciences, Chang Gung University, Taoyuan,
Taiwan in 2002. He is now the Director, Department of Medical Research and
Development, Keelung Branch and is also the Associate Professor in the College of
Medicine in Chang Gung University. He is interested in the musculoskeletal ultrasound and diabetic
foot biomechanics. He has published a series of articles for the plantar soft tissue properties in
In 2006, He was recruited as a member as the integrated diabetic foot care team in the Chang
Gung Memorial Hospital, Likou, Taiwan; where he started his wound-healing research. Negativepressure wound therapy (NPWT) has been advocated in modern medicine for chronic wound cares.
In 2008, he has built a cellular model for measuring the effects of negative pressures on the woundhealing process. This model incorporating an airtight chamber and the electric cell-substrate
impedance sensing technology was then published in the 2010. Series of investigations start later,
and in-depth analysis is on going presently. He then organized a group for in-depth analysis of the
negative pressure effects on cell migration and traction force. The group members consist of
physicians and scientists in the Chang Gung University and the Yang Ming University.
Since 1998, Dr Hsu has published over 50 SCI papers and joined 4 book chapters. His
research focuses on the effects of physical factors on wound healings now. He is willing to
cooperate with different kinds of researchers and scientists; and very happy to share experience in
building a cell model for wound-healing research at different negative pressures.
