许岩2.pngYan Xu currently holds the position of Associate Professor at Osaka Metropolitan University, Japan, where he also serves as the Principal Investigator of the Nanofluidics Lab. He pursued a Master's degree from Dalian Institute of Chemical Physics, CAS, and subsequently completed his Ph.D. at The University of Tokyo in 2007. His group's main objective is the development and application of nanofluidic devices in a wide range of fields, encompassing chemistry, biology, materials science, diagnostics, and medicine. His group is continually engaged in the study and development of innovative nanofluidic methodologies for single molecule chemistry, single cell omics, biomaterials, nanomedicine, as well as addressing human challenges in energy and the environment.


Nanofluidics explores fluid properties in nanochannels and offers precise molecular manipulation, attracting interest in multiple scientific fields. However, compared to the more mature field of microfluidics, nanofluidics still an emerging area, facing challenges in integrating functional components and achieving control within nanochannels. Our "Nano-in-Nano Integration" approach tackles these issues by incorporating various functions directly into nanochannels, paving the way for interdisciplinary nanofluidic applications. This talk will highlight our recent advancements in chip-based nanofluidic device technology, with a focus on its potential to pioneer new frontiers in chemistry, biology, and materials science.
