学术报告题目：Microfluidic Chips and Nanomaterials for Catalytic Applications
XiuJun (James) Li, Ph.D., is an Associate Professor with early tenure in the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry, Biomedical Engineering, Border Biomedical Research Center, and Environmental Science & Engineering at University of Texas at El Paso (UTEP). He obtained his Ph.D. degree from Simon Fraser University (SFU) in Canada in 2008 and pursued his postdoctoral research at University of California Berkeley and Harvard University. His current research interest is centered on the development of innovative microfluidic lab-on-a-chip and nanotechnology for bioanalysis, environmental, catalysis, and biomedical engineering applications, including but not limited to low-cost diagnosis, nano-biosensing, tissue engineering, and single-cell analysis. He has authored/coauthored more than 67 publications in high-impact journals (such as Adv. Drug Deliv. Rev, Appl. Catal. B-Environ, Proc. IEEE, Anal. Chem.) and 17 patents. He has been invited to serve in 20+ grant review panels including NSF, NIH, NASA and CHIR et al, and 6+ journal editorial boards. He is an editor of Scientific Reports from the Nature publishing group. He is the recipient of the “Bioanalysis Young Investigator Award” in 2014, Outstanding Performance Awards from UTEP in 2013-2017 (three times), UT STARS Award in 2012, Short-term “1000 Talents Award” from Tianjin (2017-2020) and so on.
