Dr. Bin Yan is a Higher Research Scientist in the National Centre of Excellence in Mass Spectrometry Imaging (MSI) at National Physical Laboratory (NPL), UK. Currently, he is leading the National Measurement System (NMS) funded program ‘Ion mobility separation enabled MSI capability advancing for in situ protein and protein-ligand binding detection’ and quality-control program ‘Instrument performance monitoring for MSI measurement’. In addition, Bin is an active team member in CRUK Grand Challenge Rosetta project ‘Creating a Google earth view of tumours using MSI’ and NMS funded project ‘Developing novel ion source for MSI’. Moreover, Bin has taken several responsibilities in industrial collaborations. He led the Innovate UK funded project of using OrbiSIMS to study pharmaceutical drugs and the service measurement of using DESI-MSI to analyse chocolate. Before joining NPL, Bin did his bachelor and master’s degree in chemistry at Xiamen University in China. Then he accepted his PhD training in molecular biophysics at Radboud University Nijmegen in the Netherlands, funded by EU Maris Curie scholarship. From Sep. 2015, Bin did a two years’ postdoc at the University of Manchester.
