Prof. Chen’s group was founded in June, 2006. It belongs to CAS Key Lab for Biomedical Effects of Nanomaterials and Nanosafety. It consists of professors, associate professors, assistant professors, senior engineer and students.

Prof. Chen received her Bachelor's degree in chemistry (1991) and obtained her PhD degree in Biomedical engineering from Huazhong University of Science and Technology of China in 1996. She worked as a postdoctoral research fellow at the Key Laboratory of Nuclear Analytical Techniques, Institute of High Energy Physics of Chinese Academy of Sciences (1996-1998) and at the Medical Nobel Institute for Biochemistry of Karolinska Institute, Sweden (2001-2002). She has been the Professor and a Group Leader of the National Center for Nanoscience and Technology of China since 2006. She was elected as a General Secretary of the Asian Society of Toxicology in 2018. She is also a fellow of Chinese Chemical Society in 2023, the American Institute for Medical and Biological Engineering in 2021, and the Royal Society of Chemistry in 2016.

Prof. Chen is one of the earliest researchers worldwide in nano-bioanalysis, nanosafety, and biomedical applications. She has made a pioneering contribution and wide collaboration in fundamental research, focusing on the nano-bio interface for understanding the biomedical activities of nanomaterials and developing a new strategy to enhance nanomaterial-mediated theranostic applications, like malignant tumors and vaccine nanoadjuvants. She has authored/co-authored over 390 peer-reviewed papers/book chapters. She has published 8 books and has been granted over 45 patents. She is the principle investigator of several domestic and international projects, such as China MOST  Program and projects from Natural Science Foundation of China, the EU2020, EU-FP6 and EU-FP7, IAEA Coordinated Research Project, Danish Council for Strategic Research, Germany BMBF Cooperation Project, and Japan photon factory cooperation projects. 

Prof. Chen has been awarded the Second Prize of the National Natural Science Award (2018,2012), 2019's Outstanding Science and Technology Achievement Prize of CAS (Outstanding Contributor), IUPAC Distinguished Women in Chemistry or Chemical Engineering (2023), National May Day Female Pacesetter (2021), TWAS Prize in Chemistry (2020), RSC Environment Prize(2021), ACS Bioconjugate Chemistry Lectureship Award (2021), China Award for Outstanding Contribution on Toxicology (2019), The Fifth Top Ten Outstanding Women of CAS (2017), Chinese Young Female Scientists Award (2014), the National Science Found for Distinguished Young Scholars (2014), the National Award for Innovation and Outstanding Service to the Standard (2011), the Second Prize of Beijing Science and Technology (ranked second, 2008), etc.

Research interests:

1. Analysis methods and chemobiological effects of nano-protein coronas;

2. Detection methods and mechanisms on in vivo behavior of nanomaterials;

3. Researches on nano-adjuvants and delivery systems.
