Zhenxin Wang has been a Professor at the Changchun Institute of Applied Chemistry (CIAC), Chinese Academy of sciences since 2006. He graduated from the Jilin University (China) in 1994 with a degree in analytical chemistry and went on to study the interactions of nucleic acids with small organic molecules for 6 years at the Changchun Institute of Applied Chemistry during his Ph.D. study. He spent 14 months at the University of East Anglia as Postdoctoral Research Fellow after he obtained his Ph.D. degree at the end of 2000. Then, he moved to the BBSRC-funded BioArray Innovation Centre at the University of Liverpool, working for Professor Mathias Brust and Professor Andrew Cossins at middle of March, 2002. Now at CIAC, his research focuses on analytical bionanotechnology, using biological specific recognition events for the development of nanoparticle-labelled microarray-based high-throughput detection and separation systems. The biological specific recognitionevents include proteins-antibodies, enzymes-substrates, peptides-cells, and carbohydrates-proteins, and so forth. These biological molecules are formulated as monolayer structures onto planar substrates or as a stabilizing layer/recognized site on metallic nanoparticles. In order to measure and quantify the molecular recognition process, surface-bound biomolecules are probed using fluorescence, Raman, and resonance light scattering.
