Prof Liu Bin bags Kabiller Young Investigator’s Award
NUS Vice President (Research and Technology) Professor Liu Bin has bagged the Kabiller Young Investigator’s Award in Nanoscience and Nanomedicine in recognition for the development of nanoparticle probes for enhancing biomedical imaging capabilities and tracking diseases. She will also receive a cash prize of US$10,000.
Her research includes the development of water-dispersible polyfluorenes for DNA sensing; molecular and nanoparticle probes for monitoring cancer metastasis and tissue regeneration; and strategies to track the delivery of nanomedicine at the cellular level.
Established in 2015, the Kabiller Prize and Awards are given out by Northwestern University and the International Institute for Nanotechnology. Every two years, an independent committee of renowned scientists picks three top scholars — one pioneer, one young investigator and one rising star — in the field of nanoscience and nanomedicine.
