Hai-Chen Wu obtained his BSc and MSc degree from College of Chemistry and Molecular Engineering, Peking University in 1998 and 2001 respectively. He then went to UK for his PhD study in organic chemistry in University of Cambridge (Cambridge, UK). After finishing his PhD in 2005, he moved to Oxford and carried out his postdoctoral research in Department of Chemistry, University of Oxford until the end of 2008. Since early 2009, he has been a principal investigator at the Key Laboratory for Biomedical Effects of Nanomaterials & Nanosafety, Institute of High Energy Physics, Chinese Academy of Sciences (Beijing, China).
