Professor Quan Yuan joins the Associate Editor team



We are delighted to welcome Professor Quan Yuan, Hunan University, China, as a new Associate Editor for Sensors & Diagnostics.







Dr. Quan Yuan is a full professor at Hunan University in China. She received her BS degree from Wuhan University in 2004 and PhD degree from Peking University in 2009. Later, she continued her postdoctoral research in University of Florida. Dr. Yuan’s group focuses on developing functional nanomaterials for applications in biosensing. The practical usage of the developed nanomaterials for disease diagnosis is the ultimate goal of Dr Yuan’s group. Dr. Yuan has authored over 100 high-quality papers. She was also invited to attend many international conferences to exchange ideas with scientists on the cutting edge of material research in China, USA, Singapore, Poland, Australia etc. Dr. Yuan has received many academic awards including: the National Science Fund for Distinguished Young Scholars in 2019, Periodic Table of Younger Chemist by IUPAC in 2019, Nano Research Young Innovators Award in 2018, etc.
