According to Dr. Cai, “The ‘JNB Trailblazer Award’ honors outstanding achievement and excellence in transformative research and exceptional mentorship by an internationally recognized independent researcher and leader in the field of nanobiotechnology.” 

But if that is not enough for one summer, Dr. Cai has also been busy speaking at various conferences, including: the keynote lecture at the 2022 International NanoMedicine Conference in Sydney, Australia; plenary lectures at the 2nd “Benevolence for the World” Molecular Imaging Summit in China and at the Global Experts Meet on Nanotechnology; and lastly, serving as the Inaugural Speaker of the Guangzhou Laboratory Overseas Academic Master Forum.
