Personal profile


Dr Kai Chen is currently a Research Associate at the School of Molecular Sciences, UWA. He finished his medical and orthopaedic surgery training in China (2007 - 2015). He completed his PhD studies (2019) in Bone Biology under the supervision of Prof.Jiake Xu at UWA.

His current research interests focus on the pathogenesis of bone disorder such as ageing- and estrogen deficiency-induced osteoporosis. To achieve this, he recently developed a first-in-kind protocol to process bone samples for isotopic imaging at the nanoscale resolution by using ion microscopy. By using a stable-isotope labelling tracer, this cutting-edge technology will advance the imaging of bone niche to an unprecedented resolution. Dr Chen is also passionate about developing biomaterials that can promote bone repair.
