The final evaluation and defense session is composed of 6 expert judges and 100 student judges. The number of student judges of each college is decided according to the proportion of graduate students in each college, and the enrollment is organized by the Postgraduate Student Union of each college and department. Adhering to the basic principle of "openness, fairness and justice", the list of "Top Ten Tutors" was finally produced by means of voting and counting votes.
The "Top Ten Tutors" selection activity aims to provide a big stage for all teachers and students and to honor excellent tutors and their teams, as well as promoting their spirits. Tutors that were awarded were the ones who showed the devotion to family and country and had the vision of globalization. What’s more, they have the fighting spirit of "looking up to the stars and being down-to-earth". They devoted themselves to scientific research and as a result of this they got a great number of outstanding deeds and achievements. The selection activity also encourages students to persist in innovation and work hard to be first-class scholars.
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.
