Shin is a recipient of the L’Oréal-UNESCO For Women in Science International Rising Talent Award for her development of nature-inspired adhesive micro-formulations for 3D and 4D bioprinting. Inspired by nature, Shin and her team are exploring the use of biomaterials, such as mussel-inspired catechol, for drug delivery. These hemostatic materials have the ability to control external and internal bleeding, which also makes them useful in wound treatment as a coating on medical tools.
