Welcome to Associate Editor Shu-Li You

We would like to wish a very warm welcome to our new Chemical Science Associate Editor Professor Shu-Li You!



Professor Shu-Lli You was born in Henan, China, and received his BSc in chemistry from Nankai Univ. in 1996. He obtained his PhD from Shanghai Institute of Organic Chemistry (SIOC) in 2001 under the supervision of Prof. Lixin Dai before doing postdoctoral studies with Prof. Jeffery Kelly at The Scripps Research Institute. From 2004, he worked at the Genomics Institute of the Novartis Research Foundation as a PI before returning to SIOC as a Professor in 2006. He is currently appointed as the director of the State Key Laboratory of Organometallic Chemistry of SIOC, and the deputy director of SIOC.

His research interests mainly focus on asymmetric C-H functionalization and catalytic asymmetric dearomatization (CADA) reactions. He is a Fellow of the Royal Society of Chemistry, and the recipient of RSC Merck Award (2015) and Ho Leung Ho Lee Foundation Prize for Scientific and Technological Innovation (2016).
