Bao was named a AAAS Fellow for her "seminal contributions that have advanced the science and technology of printed and flexible electronics through development of novel organic semiconductors, deposition and growth processes." Bao's research could lead to applications such as organic and carbon nanotube thin film transistors, organic photovoltaic cells, chemical/biological sensors and molecular switches, and artificial electronic skin.

Bao is a professor of chemical engineering and, by courtesy, of materials science and engineering. Before joining the Stanford faculty in 2004, she was a Distinguished Member of Technical Staff in the Materials Research Department of Bell Labs, Lucent Technologies. She has more than 280 refereed publications and holds more than 50 U.S. patents.
