Biography

Quan Qing obtained his S.B. and Ph.D. degrees in chemistry from Peking University in 2001 and 2006 respectively. He then joined Prof. Charles M. Lieber’s group at Harvard University as a research associate. In 2013 he came to Arizona State University to start his academic career as a joint assistant professor of the Department of Physics, and the Center of Bioelectronics and Biosensors in the Biodesign Institute. Quan is also a member of the Center of Biological Physics at Arizona State University. His main research interest lies in the interdisciplinary area of nanoscience and biology. Specifically, he focuses on the design and preparation of novel nanomaterials with unique structures and characteristics for electronics and biosensing applications, including rational synthesis and assembly of 0-D and 1-D metal/semiconductor materials into complex and ordered structures, and studies of the basic chemical and physical properties of such materials/structures with the emphasis on pushing to the limit of ultra-sensitive detection of molecular interactions, especially those involved in biological processes. His recent work concentrates on interfacing nanowire based biosensors with complex biological networks for in vitro and in vivo applications, including development of ultrasmall and multiplexed probes as new tools for fundamental research of extra- and intracellular processes, creating hybrid structures of nanoscale electronics and living cell networks/tissues for bidirectional communication and biomimetic information processing.
