The Laboratory of Biomedical Materials and Devices (LBMD) at the College of Engineering (COE) of Peking University (PKU) is an interdisciplinary research group initiated and leaded by Professor Yufeng Zheng since 2004. We work extensively on the biomedical materials and their applications in dentistry, orthopedics and interventional therapy. Starting from the fundamental microstructures and compositions of biomaterials, and extending to the evaluation, design and development of biomedical devices and instruments, we are dedicated to contribute our effort and knowledge to the forefront of this field.
