Yao He is professor of Institute of Functional Nano&Soft Materials at Soochow University in China. He received his bachelor degree (2003) in chemistry from Fudan University (China), and continued the graduate study (Master and Doctor) in Fudan University (China) in 2003-2007. He was a visiting scholar for the joint program in Shanghai Institute of Applied Physics, Chinese Academy of Sciences (2005-2007)and Stanford University (2015). Also, he worked in the Center of Super-Diamond and Advanced Films (COSDAF) in the City University of Hong Kong, HKSAR, China, as a research fellow. He became an associate professor (2009) and was promoted to full professor (2011) in Institute of Functional Nano & Soft Materials (FUNSOM) at Soochow University (China).

His research interests are in chemical biology and bioanalysis, nanotechnology, development of functional nanomaterials for bioapplications (e.g., bioimaging and biosensors), and biosafety assessment of nanomaterials. In particular, he developed functional silicon nanostructures with unique optical /thermal properties for bioimaging, biosensing, and cancer therapy applications, providing potentially promising tools for early cancer diagnosis and cancer treatment.

Starting from 2009 when Dr. He established his group, he has authored over 80 peer-reviewed papers with an impact factor (IF) lager than 3.0, 11 of which were published on top chemistry journals Angewandte Chemie and JACS.The number of SCI citations is more than 4000, the H-Index is up to 35.

Due to the systematic work on silicon nano bioanalytical detection technology, Dr. He published the first article in the world-renowned journal Acc. Chem. Res. concerning an overview of the applications of silicon nanotechnology in biological imaging, analytical testing and cancer diagnosis and treatment. In 2013, the editorial board of Appl. Phys. Lett., The world's leading journal, selected 50 papers form more than 20,000 papers published in 2009-2012 to represent the ground- Breaking research, Dr. He's work on the application of silicon-based nanostructures for highly sensitive multivariate analysis of oncogenes was one of the 50 papers, which was particularly reported by the National Natural Science Foundation official website entitled as "Suzhou University in the field of bioanalytical detection of new progress". Also, at the invitation of international famous publishing house Springer, as the editor, Dr. He published the first book,¡¶Silicon Nano-biotechnology¡·, systematically introducing silicon bio-nanotechnology in English around the world.

The Awards Dr. He Received Include:

1.Science and Technology Award (the first prize) of Analysis and Testing Association of China (CAIA) in 2009.

2.Chinese Chemical Society Award for outstanding young scientist (10 awardees per year) in 2012.

3.Chief scientist of the ¡°youth 973¡± project (National key scientific research projects) in 2013.

4."National High-level Talents Special Support Program", the Central Organization Department ----- "Scientific and Technological Innovation Leading Talent", that is, "Ten Thousand People Plan", the second level leading talent, in 2014.

5."China Youth Leaders" selected by the Ministry of Science and Technology recommended the Eleventh in 2015.

6."2015 China's well-off ten outstanding contribution figures" in 2015,
