Prof. Zhen Gu Becomes the Associate Editor of Nano Research

Prof. Zhen Gu, who is from North Carolina State University, was recently invited as an associate editor of Nano Research, which is an international academic journal sponsored by Tsinghua University and the Chinese Chemical Society, and is jointly published by Tsinghua University Press and Springer Nature.
Prof. Zhen Gu received his B.S. degree in Chemistry and M.S. degree in Polymer Chemistry and Physics from Nanjing University. In 2010, he obtained Ph.D. at the University of California, Los Angeles, under the guidance of Prof. Yi Tang in the Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering. He was a postdoctoral associate working with Prof. Robert Langer at MIT and Harvard Medical School during 2010 to 2012. He is currently an Endowed Chair Associate Professor and founding Director of the Translational Innovation (TraIn) Professional Science Master program in the Joint Department of Biomedical Engineering at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and North Carolina State University. He also holds joint positions in the Eshelman School of Pharmacy and Department of Medicine at UNC. His group studies controlled drug delivery, bio-inspired materials and nanobiotechnology. He has published over 100 research papers and applied over 40 patents, 9 of which have been licensed or directly filed by companies. Prof. Gu is the recipient of the Sloan Research Fellowship (2016), Young Investigator Award in Controlled Release Society (CRS, 2017), Alcoa Foundation Research Achievement Award (2017), Pathway Award of the American Diabetes Association (ADA, 2015) and Young Innovator Award in Cellular and Molecular Engineering of the Biomedical Engineering Society (BMES, 2015). MIT Technology Review listed him in 2015 as one of the global top innovators under the age of 35 (TR35). His invention- “Smart Insulin Patch” was featured by Nature and selected as one of the top 10 research images in 2015 by Science.

Prof. Jie Liu Becomes the Associate Editor of Nano Research

Prof. Jie Liu, who is from Duke University, was recently invited as an associate editor of Nano Research. Nano Research is an international academic journal sponsored by Tsinghua University and the Chinese Chemical Society. Since the Journal was launched in 2008, Nano Research has been steadily growing in impact in the related disciplines.
Prof. Jie Liu earned a B.S. in Chemistry from Shandong University in 1987 and a Ph.D. in Chemistry from Harvard University in 1996. He is currently the George B Geller Professor of Chemistry at Duke University. His research interests include synthesis and chemical functionalization of nanomaterials, plasmonic catalysis, nanoelectronic devices, scanning probe microscopy, and carbon nanomaterials. As a faculty member, Prof. Liu has received the DuPont Young Professor Award, Outstanding Oversea Young Investigator Award from NSF-China, Ralph E. Powe Junior Faculty Enhancement Award from Oak Ridge Associated Universities, and Bass Professorship from Duke University for excellence in teaching and research. He is elected as a Fellow in AAAS (2013), APS (2014) and RSC (2013).
