Biography

Dr. Chengchen Guo obtained B.S. degree in Chemistry from Nanjing University in 2011. After completion of the undergraduate, he earned Ph.D. degree in Chemistry from Arizona State University in Spring 2017 with a research focus on solid-state NMR spectroscopy and biopolymers. He then joined Prof. David L. Kaplan’s group at Tufts University as a postdoctoral fellow, where his research interest is to develop protein-based biofunctional medical devices for tissue engineering and regenerative medicine.


Research

The primary research focus is to develop functional biomaterials towards clinical translation with rational design and advanced processing. Some major research topics include:

1.     Protein-based bioresorbable materials for bone tissue repair and regeneration;

2.     Structure and properties of natural biopolymers (e.g. silk and collagen);

3.     Functional biopolymer-based nanocomposites and their biomedical applications.
