Research Profile

Chen Qianwang received his Doctoral degree of Science from the University of Science and Technology of China (USTC) in 1995. Then he conducted researches as a post-doctoral fellow and visiting researcher successively in Japan, Germany (Humboldt Fellow) and Hong Kong. In 2000, he was appointed as a professor and PhD supervisor at USTC. He has also been selected into the “Hundred Talents Program” of the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) in 2000. Chen has entered the list of awardees supported by the National Science Foundation for Distinguished Young Scholars of China in 2001, and has become a Chair Professor of the “Cheung Kong Scholars Program” of the Ministry of Education in 2002. In 2004, Professor Chen was selected into the State-level New Century Talents Supporting Program by seven ministries and commissions directly under the state council including the Ministry of Human Resources. Previously, he had been a member of the Academic Committee of the Key Laboratory of Materials Physics under the Ministry of Education. Currently he is serving as Member of Editorial Board of The Open Materials Science Journal, The Open Crystallography Journal", and ISRN Nanotechnology, Deputy Director of the Academic Committee of Anhui Provincial Key Laboratory of Magnetic Complexes and Nano-Materials, Director General of the Anhui Provincial Ceramic Society, and Member of the American Chemical Society.
     He has undertaken a number of research projects supported by the National Natural Science Foundation of China, the Foundation for Selected Young Scientists Studying Abroad, Chinese Academy of Sciences, the Scientific Research Foundation for the Returned Overseas Chinese Scholars, Ministry of Education of China, the National Science Foundation for Distinguished Young Scholars of China, the State Key Program for Nanomaterial Research of National Natural Science Foundation of China and Funds of the Chinese Academy of Sciences for Key Topics in Innovation Engineering, the National High Technology Research and Development Program (namely the 863 Program), as well as the Special Foundation for Young Scientists of Anhui Province. His main research areas include: chemical reaction and materials preparation under magnetic fields, and bio-medical applications of magnetic nano-particles and cross-science. He has published 170 papers to date in first-class international academic journals such as J. Am. Chem. Soc., The Journal of Geophysical Research, Advance Materials, Phys. Rev. Lett., etc. His papers have received a total of citations by journals and monographs like Nature and Science of over 1850 times. He has gain one American patent of invention and five national patents of invention, one first prize of the China Association for Instrumental Analysis Award, two second prizes of the Anhui Provincial Science and Technology Progress Award, and one first prize of the Excellent Academic Paper Award in Anhui Province. Professor Chen has compiled and published one postgraduate textbook titled The Basics of Nanoscience & Nanotechnology (Higher Education Press). Besides, he has graduated 17 doctoral candidates and 13 master’s candidates. At the same time, social positions that he has served or is currently taking include: Member of the Ninth Anhui Provincial Committee of the Chinese People’s Political Consultative Conference (from January 2003 to December 2007), Member of the Standing Committee of the Tenth Chinese People’s Political Consultative Conference of Anhui Province (from January 2008 to present), Special Engaged Procurator of the Fourth Session of Anhui Provincial People’s Procuratorate.
