Distinguished Professor Dayong Jin FTSE

Distinguished Professor Dayong Jin is an acclaimed scientist who has dedicated himself to using light waves and particles to achieve single molecule sensitivity. He develops biomedical, analytical, and imaging devices that will detect diseases much earlier, including cancer.

Collaboration is key in Dayong’s vision. He established the cross-disciplinary research institute IBMD along with an outstanding international network from academia and industry to transform advances in photonics and materials into health care technologies.

Recently, his team developed a saliva test for COVID-19 that detects the virus within 10 minutes, which can be used earlier in the virus’s infection cycle.

Dayong has received many prestigious awards for his inspiring work.
