Hongjie Dai and Yadong Li, Editors-in-Chief of the journal Nano Research, jointly presented the award medal to Prof. Lieber. The award is accompanied by a cash prize of US $10,000. After the award ceremony, Prof. Lieber made a keynote speech at the 2014 Sino-US Nano Forum.

Prof. Charles Lieber is an elected member of the National Academy of Sciences and the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, and one of the world's leading scientists in nanoscience and nanotechnology. Prof. Lieber's research has mainly focused on the growth, characterization and applications of nanomaterials and their broad range of applications in computer science, communications, optoelectronics, energy science, biology and medicine. His groundbreaking research has had a profound impact on the development of nanoscience and nanotechnology, and he was ranked the number one researcher in chemistry for the decade 2000-2010 by Thomson Reuters.

Nano Research is an international academic journal sponsored by Tsinghua University and the Chinese Chemical Society, and is jointly published by Tsinghua University Press and Springer with a 2013 Impact Factor of 6.963. The Nano Research Award was established by the editorial board of the journal and funded by Tsinghua University Press and Springer, in order to recognize outstanding scientists who have made significant contributions to nanoscience.

The Editor-in-Chief of Nano Research, Prof. Hongjie Dai, is the J.G. Jackson and C.J. Wood Professor of Chemistry at Stanford University, and an elected member of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences. In the Thomson Reuters list of the world's top 100 chemists, based on the impact of their published research, Prof. Dai was ranked number seven, and the top Chinese chemist for the decade 2000-2010.

Another Editor-in-Chief of Nano Research, Prof. Yadong Li, is a professor at Tsinghua University and member of the Chinese Academy of Sciences.
