Scholarship Description:

Lab Website:

The LI Lab aims to engineer biologically interfaced machines, specifically miniaturized sensors, and robots, which can seamlessly integrate and precisely interact with the biological systems, towards precision, ubiquitous, and affordable healthcare infrastructure. 

We are particularly interested in fundamental sciences leading to new sensing and actuation principles, by exploring the spaces between traditionally different fields. 

We also seek to develop scalable manufacturing methods to translate these inventions into ubiquitous diagnostics and therapeutics.

Examples of our work include soft bioelectronic neural interfaces for sensing neurotransmitters and hormones, microscale robots for targeted medicine delivery, and soft robots for safer human-machine interaction.

 Available Subjects:

  • Engineer biologically interfaced machines.

Eligibility criteria:

  • English language requirements for doctoral applications: TOEFL (80) or IELTS (6.5), GRE scores are not required.
  • Published papers or summary PPT slides are also welcome for candidates with research experience.

Application Procedure:

Applicants should send their CV and a short covering letter to Jinxing Li, Ph.D.. at [email protected].
