Yiming Liu, PhD

Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry, Jackson State University, Jackson, MS, USA.

Dr. Liu is Full Professor of Chemistry and Biochemistry at JSU. Bioanalytical Chemistry has been at the core of Dr. Liu’s research since his postdoc works with Dr. Alfredo Sanz-Medel at University of Oviedo in Spain and with Dr. Jonathan Sweedler at University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Dr. Liu’s group focus on developing highly sensitive and selective bioassays. The group has reported innovative bioassays deploying various instrumental techniques such as HPLC-MS, CE-MS, GC-MS, fluorescence and chemiluminescence biosensing, and microfluidics. These bioassays are used to quantify microRNAs, neurotransmitters, toxins, metabolites, and biomarkers of various diseases in biological specimens, including rat brain, physiological fluids, tissues, cell cultures, etc.

Dr. Liu has published over 125 peer-reviewed papers in chemical journals, and his Hirsch Index (H-index) is 34. He has extensive research experience in the areas of bioanalytical chemistry, chemical instrumentation, microfluidics, functional nanometer-sized materials, herbal medicine, drug metabolism, and analytical pharmacology and toxicology.
