HKBU analytical scientist named to a list of globally-recognised leaders

Prof Cai
Professor Cai Zongwei has been named to the Analytical Scientist Power List 2020

Professor Cai Zongwei, Kwok Yat-Wai Endowed Chair in Environmental & Biological Analysis, Chair Professor of Chemistry, Director of the Dioxin Analysis Laboratory and State Key Laboratory of Environmental & Biological Analysis, has been selected as one of the top global analytical researchers in this year's Power List by the Analytical Scientist


The Power List celebrates the top 10 analytical science researchers from every continent who are nominated by their peers, and Professor Cai is the only recipient from a university in Hong Kong.


The major research interest of Professor Cai is method development and applications of chromatography coupled with mass spectrometry for trace analysis in complex systems such as environment, food and biological matrices, with focus on metabolomics and proteomics research on human health and diseases.


“As an analytical chemist, innovation and multidisciplinary research are particularly important. Research focus is of course necessary, but interest and motivation may also come from the needs of the community – and society as a whole,” said Professor Cai. “I am glad to see that analytical chemistry in HKBU is not only the best in Hong Kong, but also well recognised internationally.”
