Short Biography

Dr Wen Li was born in 1980. He obtained his PhD degree (2006) in Chemistry from Jilin University, and then became a Lecturer in the same University. In 2010, he moved to Seoul National University and did research work with Prof. Myongsoo Lee. He is currently a professor in Jilin University.

Research Interest

My current research work focus on: (1) the design of artificial peptides and adhesive materials; (2) functional gel-like materials based on peptides; (3) peptide-based supramolecular polymers with high mechanical strength
