Dr. Chunhai Fan, Professor

Research areas: Biosensors


                         DNA nanotechnology & computation




Chunhai Fan obtained his B.S. and Ph.D. from the Department of Biochemistry at Nanjing University in 1996 and 2000. After his postdoctoral research at University of California, Santa Barbara (UCSB), he joined the faculty at Shanghai Institute of Applied Physics (SINAP), Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) in 2004. He is now Professor and Chief of the Division of Physical Biology and the Center of Bioimaging at SINAP. He is an elected fellow of the International Society of Electrochemistry (ISE). He is also the Associate Editor of ACS Applied Materials & Interfaces, the editorial board member of several journals (Scientific Reports, Advanced Healthcare Materials, Journal of Materials Chemistry, Electroanalysis, Particles etc.), and the Guest Editor of Advanced Materials.

Dr. Fan has published over 200 papers in peer-reviewed journals. He is the inventor on more than 30 patents (US, Chinese and International). His work has been recognized  by many awards including High Cited Researchers (2014, Thomson Reuters), National Award for Young Scientists of China (2011), CAS Award for Young Scientists (Chinese Academy of Sciences, 2012), CCS Award for Young Scientists (Chinese Chemical Society, 2006), NSFC Award for Outstanding Young Scientists (National Science Foundation of China, 2007).
