Welcome to Lizhi Xu Research Group at The University of Hong Kong.

We aim to develop soft materials and devices that can naturally integrate with the human body. Our research imparts biomimetic concepts to the engineering of nanocomposite materials that replicate the structures and functions of soft tissues. We employ advanced fabrication techniques to generate reconfigurable 3D structures, allowing for integration of high-performance electronic components and biomaterials into organ-compliant forms. The integrative scientific and engineering approaches seek to enable fully functional devices for implantable biomedical tools, tissue engineering platforms, wearable electronics, energy and environmental technologies, and many other applications. 

We are looking for highly motivated students and scholars to join us. (learn more)
