We are a highly interdisciplinary research group of scientists and engineers working on soft materials and bioelectronics at the University of Missouri-Columbia. Our current research interests center on creating new soft functional materials, exploring novel 2D/3D device designs, and developing scalable fabrication approaches for next-generation bioinspired/biointegrated electronics to bring solutions to the grand challenges faced in human society. Specifically, our research mainly consists of three themes: (i) synthesis and characterizations of multifunctional soft electronic materials with unprecedented properties; (ii) development of next-generation bioelectronics with customized multimodalities and chronical biocompatibility, which can simultaneously record multiple desired signals, provide closed-loop adaptive treatment, and blur the biotic-abiotic dissimilarities in structures, mechanics and biochemistry; (iii) exploring cost-effective, scalable manufacturing of bioelectronics to facilitate their disposable (i.e., one-time use) and practical applications. More details can be found here.
We are looking for highly passionate and self-motivated undergraduate, master and Ph.D. students and postdocs to join us. If you are interested in working on soft electronics and advanced manufacturing, please feel free to send your resume to Dr. Yan at yanzheng@missouri.edu.
