Mai Suan Li, Poland

Institute of Physics, the Academy of Science of Poland 

The third Vietnamese granted the state-level professor title by Polish President 

Professor Mai Suan Li is currently working at the Institute of Physics, Academy of Science of Poland.

His scientific contributions have been internationally recognized and highly praised. Using the name "Mai Suan Li" in scientific publications, he has published hundreds of papers in renowned journals with high citation indices, such as Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS) and Physical Review Letters (PRL). His research is widely cited by peers and belongs to the group of highly referenced works. 

One of his outstanding scientific achievements in statistical physics is the development, along with his colleagues, of a group renormalization method for studying phase transitions in continuous symmetry systems. In the field of biomedical science, Professor Mai Suan Li identified fundamental factors determining the fibrilization rate of proteins related to severe diseases like Alzheimer's and Parkinson's. He demonstrated the mechanical stability of proteins is linked to their secondary structure. He has also collaborated on numerous publications with Vietnamese researchers around the world. Currently, he supervises two Vietnamese doctoral students and over 10 others working on research related to Alzheimer's disease, avian influenza A/H1N1, and A/H5N1.  

In recognition of his tireless contributions to science, in late April, at the Presidential Palace in Poland, President Bronislaw Komorowski awarded the state professorship to Mai Suan Li. This honor acknowledges his excellent professional qualifications and contributions to Poland's scientific development. Professor Mai Suan Li is the third Vietnamese to be awarded a state professorship by the Polish government.
