Prof. G. Logan Liu has a multidisciplinary educational background and was trained in both engineering technology development and clinical medical research environment. He obtained his joint Ph.D. degree in Bioengineering from University of California-Berkeley and University of California-San Francisco with the honor of outstanding publication award. His graduate research was focusing on developing micro and nanophotonic and electronic molecular detection systems for cancer diagnosis and therapy. He received his postdoctoral training in Helen Diller Family Comprehensive Cancer Center at San Francisco where he worked with breast and prostate oncologists and clinical medical workers to apply novel nanotechnologies in diagnosing and curing cancers. After the medical postdoctoral training, he joined Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory as a prestigious Lawrence Fellow funded by U.S. Department of Energy to foster the nanobiotechnology research there for biodefense applications. In 2008 Prof. Liu joined University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign as an assistant professor in department of electrical and computer engineering and micro and nanotechnology laboratory. His expertise includes design, modeling, and fabrication of nanoelectronic and nanophotonic devices and their biomedical applications. His current research interest is developing “Nanobionics” by integrating solid-state optoelectronic nanodevices with functional biomolecules and studying the properties of electrons, photons and ions in the hybrid system. In his vision, varies of nanobionics systems will be created for applications in health care, energy harvesting and environment protections.
