    Biography
      Dr. Wei Min graduated from Peking University, China, with a Bachelor's degree in 2003. He received his Ph.D. in Chemistry from Harvard University in 2008 studying single-molecule biophysics with Prof. Sunney Xie. After continuing his postdoctoral work in Xie group, Dr. Min joined the faculty of Department of Chemistry at Columbia University in 2010, and has been a tenured full Professor since 2017. Dr. Min's current research interests focus on developing novel optical spectroscopy and microscopy technology to address biomedical problems. Dr. Min's contribution has been recognized by a number of honors, including:

      Blavatnik National Awards for Young Scientists, Faculty Finalist (2019)
      Pittsburgh Conference Achievement Award (2019)
      Analyst Emerging Investigator Lectureship (2018)
      ACS Early Career Award in Experimental Physical Chemistry (2017)
      Coblentz Award in Molecular Spectroscopy (2017)
      Buck-Whitney Award of American Chemical Society (2015)
      Camille Dreyfus Teacher-Scholar Award (2015)
      George Fraenkel Fund Award (2014)
      Alfred P. Sloan Research Fellowship (2013)
      National Institute of Health (NIH) Director's New Innovator Award (2012)
      Young Investigator in Analytical and Bioanalytical Science (2012)

      Biography

        With a background in optics, biophysics and cell biology, it is my passion to develop instruments and procedures to probe biological processes at the (sub-)cellular and tissue levels. At Leica Microsystems, I work with customers, collaboration partners and in-house R&D to drive innovation in nonlinear optical microscopy and multimodal imaging, including coherent Raman scattering microscopy (CARS, SRS), multi-photon fluorescence microscopy, lifetime imaging, and harmonic-generation microscopy (SHG, THG).

        Previously, at Rice University, I applied multiplexed fluorescence- and superresolution microscopy procedures to study the coordination of cytoskeletal, membrane processing and protein trafficking pathways in the maturation of epithelial cells and tissues.

        I also have an interest in exploring novel biosensing concepts based on nanophotonic technologies.
