      Prof. Guanghui Ma graduated from Gunma University, Japan (1988) as a scholarship student of China Education Minstry, and received her Ph.D. (1993) in Polymer Chemistry from Tokyo Institute of Technology. She started his academic career at Tokyo University of Agriculture and Technolgy as Assistant Professor (1994). She moved to Institute of Process Engeering, Chinese Academy of Sciences as a full professor (2001), and was appointed as Vice Director of State key Laboratory of Biochemical Engineering (2002), Vice Director of Institute of Process Engineering (2005). She has been appointed current position since 2012. Prof. Ma is one of the earliest women scientists who have won the China National Science Fund for Distinguished Young Scholars. She has been engaged in the area of functional nano-microparticles for systematic theoretic study and innovative biomedical applications. For example, 1) She established the Membrane Emulsification Technique to prepare uniform sized nano-microspheres; 2) She discovered a variety of new merits of polysaccharides particles including the autofluorescence property, environmental sensitive response; 3) She established large-scale preparation platform of uniform nano-microparticles, which have been successfully designed for bio-separation media, drug release carrier and particle adjuvant.

      Prof. Ma has published 344 papers (173 first/corresponding author), such as Nature Materials, Nature Commun, JACS, Adv Materials, ACS Nano, Biomaterials. She edited/wrote 12 books, such as "Microspheres and Microcapsules in Biotechnology". She is also an invited editor for special issue of Small, Vaccine, etc. She has been authorized 82 patents, some of them have been transferred to companies and developed to a series of commercialized products.

     She has received Outstanding Contribution Award from federation of Biotechnology (AFOB), the First Prize of Beijing Science and Technology Award, and the Second Prize of National Technological Invention Award, TWAS-TWOWS-SCOUPS Regional Young Women Researcher Award, and so forth.
