Dr. Liaohai Chen

Dr. Liaohai Chen joined the Department of Surgery at the University of Illinois at Chicago from the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry at Utah State University, where I was a USTAR professor in analytic chemistry. Before Utah State, he was a molecular biologist and group leader in the Biosciences Division at Argonne National Laboratory. Dr. Chen trained in organic photochemistry and has been working extensively in life science and biomedical research. He holds broad, yet extensive, experience in radiochemistry (original development of radiophage platform), spectroscopy & imaging (original development of Hole Enhanced Raman spectroscopy), molecular/cell biology (creation of HSV-TK and K-ras transgenic goat), and material science (development of organic nanoparticles).
