Prof. Fan obtained B.S. and M.S. from Peking University (China) in 1991 and 1994, respectively, and Ph.D. in physics and optics from Oregon Center for Optics at the University of Oregon (USA) in 2000. Between 2000 and 2004, he was a project leader at 3M Company on fiber optics and photonic sensing devices for biomedical applications. In August of 2004, he joined the Department of Biological Engineering at the University of Missouri as an Assistant Professor and was early-promoted to Associate Professor in 2009. In January of 2010, he joined the Biomedical Engineering Department at the University of Michigan. In 2014, he was early-promoted to Full Professor.
Prof. Fan’s research lies at the interface of photonics, micro/nanofluidics, nano-/biotechnologies, and biomedicine. The current active programs include photonic bio/chemical sensors, micro/nano-fluidics, optofluidics, and nano-photonics for disease diagnostics and bio/chemical molecule analysis. In particular, (1) ultrasensitive optical label-free biosensors; (2) microfluidic optomechanics; (3) optofluidic bio-lasers; (4) optofluidic ELISA development for sensitive and rapid biomolecular analysis; (5) multi-dimensional micro-gas chromatography instrument development for portable and wearable vapor detection; and (6) study and development of novel optical and nanoelectronic sensors. He has about 150 peer-reviewed publications and approximately 30 issued/pending patents and is a co-founder of two start-up companies. Dr. Fan is currently serves as the Thrust Leader of Michigan Center for Wireless Integrated MicroSensing & Systems, Associate Director of the Michigan Center for Integrative Research in Critical Care, and Director of NIH Microfluidics in Biomedical Sciences Training Program. He also serves on the Editorial Board of Lab on a Chip for Royal Society of Chemistry and Advanced Materials Technologies for Wiley. In addition, he works as a chair and organizer of numerous conferences for Gordon Research Conference, OSA, SPIE, and MRS.
Prof. Fan is a recipient of 3M Non-Tenured Faculty Award, American Chemical Society Petroleum Research Fund Award for Young Faculty, the Wallace H. Coulter Early Career Award, the National Science Foundation CAREER Award, and the University of Michigan College of Engineering Monroe-Brown Foundation Research Excellence Award. He is a Fellow of Optical Society of America, Royal Society of Chemistry, and SPIE.
