Biomaterials Synthesis and Surface Engineering Lab

Dr. Song Liu is actively recruiting graduate students (with M.Sc. degree) to the Ph.D. program of Biomedical Engineering at University of Manitoba (Winnipeg, Canada).



Dr. Song Liu‘s research focuses on 1) the development of novel surface engineering techniques for chemically inert semicrystalline polymers; 2) the development of new biocidal and biocompatible materials; and 3) micro- and nano-encapsulation of bioactive agents for their targeted and controlled delivery.

He has obtained research support from various granting agencies (including NSERC, CIHR, CFI and MHRC) for his pioneering work in exploring new durable and versatile surface modification techniques for chemically inert semicrystalline polymers. His research group has successfully developed a versatile polyester platform which can allow furnishing the surface with various bio-functionalities via “click” chemistry method in a spatially-controlled manner. This work lays an important foundation for well-controlled durable bio-functionalization of chemically inert semicrystalline polymers for their uses in medical devices such as vascular grafts, drug release stents and wound dressings.

Welcome to the Liu Group Website

The Liu Group has openings for self-motivated Ph.D. students. The positions involve research on the synthesis of novel antimicrobial magnetic nanoparticles, the synthesis of block-polymer based nanoparticles with selective binding affinity with bacteria and the fabrication of core-shell nanofibrous membranes for targeted and responsive drug delivery.
