Ruirui joined the CBNS in 2017. Originally from Beijing, China, she works with Professor Tom Davis.
Her work combines the techniques of polymer chemistry, inorganic chemistry, material science (specifically nanomaterials), biology and computer science to develop and validate new technologies in molecular imaging using nanoprobes which can act as a diagnostic and prognostic marker for a variety of morbidities (e.g. tumour and cardiovascular disease).
Ruirui comes from the Institute of Chemistry, at the Chinese Academy of Science (CAS), where she was an Associate Professor. She initially graduated from Peking University and got her PhD from CAS.
