2020 - Gregori Aminoff Prize, Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences for their fundamental contributions to the understanding of biological redox metal clusters
His primary areas of study are Photosystem II, Crystallography, Biochemistry, Cytochrome and Oxygen evolution. Jian Ren Shen focuses mostly in the field of Photosystem II, narrowing it down to matters related to Photochemistry and, in some cases, Hydrogen bond. Jian Ren Shen has included themes like Molecule, Manganese and Water splitting in his Crystallography study.
When carried out as part of a general Biochemistry research project, his work on Cytochrome b6f complex, DCMU and Random hexamer is frequently linked to work in Cytochrome c and Hexagonal crystal system, therefore connecting diverse disciplines of study. Jian Ren Shen studied Oxygen evolution and Electron transport chain that intersect with Ion and Bromide. His Photosynthesis study incorporates themes from Protein structure, Artificial photosynthesis and Catalysis.
Jian Ren Shen mainly investigates Photosystem II, Photosynthesis, Biophysics, Photochemistry and Crystallography. His Photosystem II study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Photosynthetic reaction centre, Oxygen evolution and Crystal structure. Jian Ren Shen combines subjects such as Chlorophyll and Water splitting with his study of Photosynthesis.
His study in Biophysics is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Thylakoid, Protein subunit, Chlorophyll a, Diatom and Protein structure. His work investigates the relationship between Photochemistry and topics such as Redox that intersect with problems in Catalysis. His studies deal with areas such as Valence, Molecule, Hydrogen bond and Cluster as well as Crystallography.
