Ph.D. Candidate in Materials Science and Engineering, University of California, San Diego

Zhengxing Li, a Ph.D. candidate in Materials Science and Engineering advised by Dr. Joseph Wang, has demonstrated remarkable leadership in developing a biohybrid microrobots platform for in vivo biomedical applications. His work currently focuses on regulating colonic cytokine levels and epithelial barriers in inflammatory bowel disease, and actively delivering drug-loaded nanoparticles to inhibit lung metastasis progression. These contributions have significantly advanced the field’s understanding. Li’s collaborative efforts have been crucial to his success, resulting in 13 published articles and six manuscripts under review in prestigious journals like Nature Materials. Additionally, Li, as a member of the Elsevier review board, has completed five independent reviews, and actively participates in key international conferences like MRS, ACS, and Pittcon to share his insights and gather new knowledge. A dedicated mentor, Zhengxing is committed to guiding junior students towards their own research success, demonstrating his leadership and dedication to scientific advancement.
