Shu-Li You was born in Henan, China, and received his BSc in chemistry from Nankai Univ. (1996). He obtained his PhD from Shanghai Institute of Organic Chemistry (SIOC) in 2001 under the supervision of Prof. Lixin Dai before doing postdoctoral studies with Prof. Jeffery Kelly at The Scripps Research Institute. From 2004, he worked at the Genomics Institute of the Novartis Research Foundation as a PI before returning to SIOC as a Professor in 2006. He is currently appointed as the director of the State Key Laboratory of Organometallic Chemistry and deputy director of SIOC. His research interests mainly focus on asymmetric C-H functionalization and catalytic asymmetric dearomatization (CADA) reactions. Professor You has published over 300 research papers in internationally peer-reviewed journals (>18000 citations). He is the recipient of AstraZeneca Excellence in Chemistry Award (2011), RSC Merck Award (2015), Ho Leung Ho Lee Foundation Prize for Scientific and Technological Innovation (2016), State Natural Science Award (2nd class) (2017), and Xplorer Prize (2019). Prof. You has been an Associate Editor for Chemical Science since July 2020.
