CEO: Dr. Hao Li

Dr. Li is the co-founder and CEO of Nanova Biomaterials Inc. and he has been working on dental materials since 1996. Dr. Li also served as a faculty in the college of engineering at the University of Missouri-Columbia for 14 years. With both entrepreneurial and academic experience, Dr. Li build bridges between dentists, scientists and engineers to create innovative products at Nanova. Inspired by the fact that both bone and teeth are composites containing calcium phosphate nanofibers, Dr. Li and his colleagues at Nanova developed and applied a biomimetic nanocomposite technology in the field of dentistry and orthopedics to develop products with improved mechanical and biological properties. This technology, funded by both National Science Foundation (NSF) and National Institute of Health (NIH), lead to our NovaPro series of dental composites. Dr. Li was trained as a materials scientist with bachelor and master degree from Xi’an Jiaotong University and Ph.D. degree from Stevens Institute of Technology and also obtained postdoctoral training from Brown University in nanotechnology.
