Frank Ko

Canada Research Chair Professor (Tier 1) in Advanced Fibrous Materials, Professor
Materials Engineering
Faculty of Applied Science

Building on a tradition of creative design and fabrication of fibre based surgical implants, the Advanced Fibrous Materials Laboratory is dedicated to the development of a nanofiber platform for tissue engineering scaffolds in orthopedic, vascular and neual prostheses. Ko also works on Nanofibre technology to gain a fundamental understanding and investigate methods to produce nanofibres consistently and reproducibly. Ko’s research also focuses on textile structural composites, which are composites reinforced by textile structures dedicated for load bearing applications, such as armor and vehicle safety products.
