Dr. Chai earned a DMD degree from Peking University School of Stomatology as well as DDS and PhD in Craniofacial Biology from the University of Southern California. He is most noted for his research on craniofacial development and birth defects, which has transformed the field and led to the successful rescue of cleft palate in mouse embryos. He also studies stem cells and is currently using innovative 3D-printed scaffolds seeded with stem cells to regenerate tissue for patients who have lost bone due to trauma, congenital defects, or disease.

Dr. Chai is a member of the National Academy of Medicine. He is an elected member of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences (AAAS). Dr. Chai has authored more than 170 scientific papers and numerous book chapters, and recently edited a book - Craniofacial Development. Dr. Chai has been continuously funded by the National Institutes of Health for more than 25 years. His work has earned him multiple awards including the 2011 IADR (International Association of Dental Research) Distinguished Scientist Award. 2023 Paul Goldhaber Award for contribution to Oral and Systemic Health from Harvard University School of Dental Medicine.
