Liqun Ning is currently an Assistant Professor from the Department of Mechanical Engineering at Cleveland State University (CSU). His research interests are in the general area of mechanical and biomedical engineering, with particular emphasis on developing the next generation of tissue constructs, biomedical devices and platforms for addressing significant challenges in regenerative medicine and disease modelling/drug screening. Before joining CSU, he was a postdoctoral scholar Emory University and Georgia Institute of Technology, where he worked with Drs. Vahid Serpooshan and Holly Bauser-Heaton on developing biomaterials and biomanufacturing strategies to engineer perfusable platforms for cardiovascular disease and cancer modelling. He earned his Ph.D. in 2018 in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Saskatchewan, Canada, where he was supervised by Dr. Daniel Chen to develop artificial tissue scaffolds for damaged nerve regeneration.
