Ning Fang received his B.S. from Xiamen University, China in 1998 and his Ph.D. from the University of British Columbia, Canada in the group of Prof. David D.Y. Chen in 2006 and was a Postdoctoral Associate at Iowa State University and Ames Laboratory, US Department of Energy with Prof. Edward S. Yeung from 2006 to 2008. From 2008 to 2015, he was an Assistant Professor of Chemistry at Iowa State University and a Faculty Scientist at U.S. Department of Energy, Ames Laboratory. In July 2015, he moved his laboratory to the Department of Chemistry at Georgia State University and became an Associate Professor. His research aims to open up new frontiers in chemical and biological discovery through the development and use of novel optical imaging platforms. He has pioneered the development of single particle orientation and rotational tracking techniques that reveal rotational motions of anisotropic imaging probes in live cells. He is also the founding co-chair of the Gordon Reference Conference on Chemical Imaging, which promotes the frontiers of science enabled by innovations in chemical imaging using optical, mass, and electrochemical signals.
