Ran was raised up in Lanxi, a quiet town in the middle of Zhejiang province, China, and finished his major in physical chemistry from the Department of Chemistry at Sichuan University in 1996. Following the completion of his PhD study on natural product synthesis under the supervision of Professor Guoqiang Lin at Shanghai Institute of Organic Chemistry in 2001, he conducted the postdoctoral research on charge-transfer complex with the mentorship of late Professor Dr. Jay K. Kochi at University of Houston. Later he joined the Professor Li Deng's group at Brandeis University to focus on asymmetric synthesis. Since March 2007, he has been appointed principle investigator at Shanghai Institute of Organic Chemistry to define his interest in exploiting the biomimetic approach on asymmetric method development and total synthesis of structurally complex and biologically significant natural products.
