Wenzhe Fan
(Post-doc, Analytical Chemistry)
I received my B.S. and M.S. degrees in Chemistry and Analytical Chemistry from Shaanxi Normal University ( (SNU) in 1990 and 1993, respectively. I then worked at Ocean University of China ( (OUC) for five years. My research interests at OUC were focused on environmental analysis, chemiluminescence, fluorescence and spectrometry combined with flow-injection analysis, enzyme immobilization techniques, etc. I obtained my Ph.D. degree in Analytical Chemistry from the University of New Hampshire ( (UNH) in 2003 and then joined Dr. Kopelman’s group as a postdoctoral researcher in the University of Michigan. My Ph.D. research at UNH concentrated on the development of chemical sensors based on swellable molecularly imprinted polymer (MIP) microspheres in a hydrogel for the analysis of drugs, such as norephedrine, theophylline, etc

Current Research:
My current research mainly focuses on the development of dynamic nano-platform (DNP) based on nanoparticles containing photosensitizers or radiosensitizer for the early detection and treatment of cancer by photodynamic therapy (PDT) or radiation therapy (RT), which is funded by National Cancer Institute.
