Dr. Yimin Qin studied for his PhD in the University of Leeds between 1986-1990. After spending three years in Heriot-Watt University working on his postdoctoral project, he became the R & D manager in Advanced Medical Solutions Plc in Cheshire, UK, where he led a team of scientists and developed a number of high performance fibers and wound dressings from alginate, chitosan and other natural polymers. He then went to study for an MBA in Manchester Business School and after graduation, took up the position of Fibers Product Manager in SSL International, working on advanced silver containing antimicrobial alginate fibers and wound dressings. In 2002, Dr. Qin went back to China and taught at Jiaxing University, Zhejiang Province.
