Prof. Xiaojun Chen is with Institute of Biomedical Manufacturing, School of Mechanical Engineering, Shanghai Jiao Tong University (SJTU), China. He received his Ph.D from SJTU in 2006, and then furthered his research as a postdoctoral fellow at the same institution until 2008. After that, he has been working at SJTU as assistant professor (2008-2010), associate professor (2010-2018), and full professor(2018-now). His research focuses on computer assisted surgery, including medical image analysis, surgical navigation, VR/AR/MR technology in medicine, surgical robotics, etc. As a visiting professor, he had worked at the Surgical Planning Laboratory, Harvard Medical School during Oct 2011~ Oct 2012; the TIMC-IMAG lab, CNRS, France during Sep~Dec 2013; the OMFS-IMPATH lab, KU Leuven, Belgium during Jun~Aug 2015, and the CISTIB lab, the University of Sheffield, UK during Jun~ Aug 2016.
He is the author and co-author of more than 150 peer-reviewed articles, and delivered more than 20 lectures (5 invited plenary speeches) in the prestigious international conferences including CARS, IEEE-EMBC, IEEE-ITAB, CAI, etc. He was granted Second Prize of National Science & Technology Progress Award of China (2019), Chinese Society of Stomatology Science and Technology Award (2018), Scientific Chinese "Outstanding Young Scientist Award"(2017), Jiangsu Province Science & Technology Award (2017), China Medical Science and Technology Award (2016), Shanghai Science & Technology Award (2010), Shanghai Medical Science & Technology Award (2008). For his academic achievements, he has been included for the 2010 Edition of Marquis Who's Who in the World. In May 2011, he was selected as one of the seven laureates of “France Talent Innovation (FTI) Program” launched by the Embassy of France in China, aiming to foster innovation and reinforce links between France and China.
He is the PI of more than 30 research projects, including seven funded by National Natural Science Foundation of China, and several international collaboration projects including PHC-Cai Yuanpei and Xu Guangqi Program (China-France), NSFC-RS Cooperation and Exchange Program (China-UK), NSFC-DFG Cooperation and Mobility Exchange Program(China-Germany), NSFC-STINT Cooperation Project(China-Sweden), NSFC Joint Research Fund for Overseas Scholars(China-Belgium), International Research and Exchange Project Funded by Shanghai municipal government (China-USA-Austria-Belgium), etc.
