Who We Are
Dr. Yaoping Liu
Yaopingjoined SMART AMR IRG in August 2019 as a postdoctoral associate in Prof.Jongyoon Han’s Group. She received PhD. degree in Microelctronics and Solid-electronics from Peking University in 2017 and B.E. degree in Biological Engineering from Beihang University in 2010. Her previous postdoctoral experience was in biomedical-MEMS group in Peking University, from July 2017 to July 2019. She was a visiting PhD. student in MIT from November 2012 to October 2013.
Her research interest focuses on the development of micro/nano technologies for biomedical and clinicalapplications. She has developed an ultra-high-throughput liquid biopsy technique based on a 2.5D high- porosity mesh, which has demonstrated outstanding performance in rare (as low as 1) cell separation from large-volume (>10 mL) body fluid samples. This technique was awarded the Special Gold Medal in the 46th International Exhibition of Inventions, Geneva, 2018, and has been used in many universities and companies.
Yaoping now works in a multi disciplinary project between Han group and Prof. Lih Feng Cheow Group in NUS. She focuses on the pathogen separation from body fluids based on micro/nanopore filtration. She explores both the principal mechanism in filtration and the standardization of sample preparation for POCT of blood infection.
