IntroducationDr. Du obtained his B.S. in Biosciences degree from University of Science and Technology of China (USTC) in 2009, and Ph.D. of Bioengineering from University of Pittsburgh in 2015. He has published 8 peer reviewed SCI papers in top biomaterials and biomedical engineering journals, including Advanced Functional Materials, Acta Biomaterialia and IEEE transactions on Biomedical Engineering. His work has been cited over 100 times so far. His research focuses on in vivo electrophysiology and novel smart materials for improving implantable neural electrodes. In the past few years he had presented two oral presentations at Society for Neuroscience (SfN) conference on novel drug release electrodes and flexible electrode array materials. Recently, he developed many novel materials for EEG electrode as well as in vivo micro-electrode array, and this translational work may find its way in transforming medical and healthcare technologies on the market in the near future.
