Ping Nieh received his Ph.D. degree from the University of Massachusetts, Amherst, in 1998. After 4 years (1998–2002) of postdoctoral research on structural characterization of soft materials at National Institute of Standards and Technology, he joined the National Research Council in Canada to continue his research on the biomimetic membranes and their interaction with biomolecules (e.g., cholesterol, membrane-associated proteins) using neutron scattering techniques (2002–2010). In 2010, he became a Professor at the Department of Chemical, Materials and Biomolecular Engineering, University of Connecticut. Currently, his research focues on designing self-assembled lipid-based nanocarriers for in vivo delivery, structure-function relationship of membrane-associated protein, as well as fluorescence sensing nanomaterials.
