On 8 September 2010, at the invitation of Prof. Hong LIU, Yangtse Rive Scholar Bing YAN from the University of Shandong visited Shanghai Institute of Materia Medica for academic exchanges and delivered an academic lecture titled ‘Biocompatible Cancer Targeting Nanoparticles through Nano-combinatorial Chemistry’. The lecture focused on the progress and challenges in nanoparticle library approach for cancer diagnostics and therapeutics research. He firstly presented his new perception of nanoparticle library approach for cancer diagnostics and therapeutics research. He also demonstrated the recent breakthroughs his research team made in using computer-assisted design of surface ligand molecules and parallel synthesis to make surface modified nanoparticle libraries for in vitro and in vivo studies. His work is very important to the nano material combinatorial chemistry.The lecture intrigued a heated discussion among Prof. Yan and the attendees.
Bing Yan is a professor of Chemistry at the Shandong University and is currently serving as Vice-Editor-in-Chief of Journal of Combinatorial Chemistry of ACS. His research interests focus on the Combinatorial Chemistry, chemical biology and anti-cancer drug development.
