Hao Yan

Director, Biodesign Center for Molecular Design and Biomimetics
Professor, College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, Chemistry and Biochemistry
Milton D. Glick Distinguished Professor, College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, Chemistry and Biochemistry

Hao Yan studied chemistry at Shandong University, China. He obtained his PhD in Chemistry under Professor N. C. Seeman, New York University in 2001. Following a period as an Assistant Research Professor at Duke University in the Computer Science department, he joined Arizona State University as Assistant Professor in Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry in 2004. He became a Full Professor at Arizona State University since 2008. He is currently the Milton D. Glick Distinguished Professor in Chemistry and Biochemistry and Director of the Center for Molecular Design and Biomimetics in the Biodesign Institute at Arizona State University. The themes of his research are structural DNA nanotechnology and DNA-directed self-assembly.

Hao Yan's research program is highly interdisciplinary which combines chemistry, biology, physics and material science. The goal of his research group is to achieve programmed design and assembly of biologically inspired nanomaterials and to explore its applications in nanoelectronics, controlled macromolecular interactions and biosensing.
