Molecular Endoscope for pre-Cancer Diagnostics and Chemical Imaging Based Surgical Guidance System
The primary impetus of our research program is to serve clinical diagnosis and in vivo surgical guidance in a non-invasive fashion. The technological tools that we heavily implemented and constantly advanced are biological mass spectrometry and spontaneous Raman imaging, and anything interplayed in middle, by which we are developing versatile analytical approaches and associated apparatuses, targeting on early-stage cancer diagnosis and chemical distinction between malignant and benign tumors. The ultimate goal of our program emphasized on translating the bench products to clinical applications, especially for oncological treatment, which unfortunately represents the highest mortality rate under current practice. The high-resolution mass spectrometric analysis provides the exhaustive chemical insights regarding genome, proteome and metabolome, comprehensively elucidating the underlying mechanism of tumor development and interactions between drug and targets. On the other hand, Raman imaging renders an additional dimension, chemical recognizable tumor margin, for a real time surgical guidance with a negligible interference to patients.This combined technology ensures in the near future that we will see the final effective solutions in routine oncologic diagnostic and surgical procedures.
Bei Nie, currently employed as a full professor in South-central University of Nationalities. Before that, Dr. Nie worked for Merck Co. Inc (USA) and Chinese academy of science as an independent principle investigator. In 2006, Dr. Nie graduated from Chemistry Department, University of Wisconsin-Madison, within 4-year PhD program, under the supervision of Professor Lloyd M. Smith, who is the inventor of automatic DNA sequencing, which revolutionized the genetic research and promoted the completion of HUMAN GENOME PROJECT by shrinking sequencing time from a thousand years to 10. Dr. Nie published, as a leading or corresponding author, 18 scientific articles, with total impact factor over 60, and was awarded 3 grants. His research interest rivetingly pinpointed on: biological mass spectrometry, Raman imaging and biomaterials.
