The Laboratory of Biological and Bio-inspired Materials led by Dr. Ling Li is based at the Department of Mechanical Engineering at Virginia Tech. Our group seeks to discover the fundamental structure-property relationships in multifunctional biological materials, elucidate the formation principles for biological and bio-inspired materials, develop novel in-situ mechanical measurement and analysis technologies, and finally develop bio-inspired structural and multifunctional materials. Feel free to browse our group website for more details. If you have any questions about me or my research, feel free to email me at lingl@vt.edu.


One Ph.D. position for Fall 2020.

Please contact Dr. Li if you are interested.
