Shiyi Zhang has been a tenure track associate professor in the School of Biomedical Engineering at the Shanghai Jiao Tong University since 2016. He obtained his bachelor’s degree from Peking University in Beijing in 2008. After then, he started his Ph.D. study with Prof. Karen Wooley at the Washington University in St. Louis. His PhD research interests ranged from degradable polymer for nanomedicine to the polymer self-assembly for functional nanostructures. Upon the completion of his PhD research in 2013, he arrived at MIT as a Max-Planck Postdoctoral Fellow with Prof. Robert S. Langer, focusing the translational study for gastrointestinal drug delivery. Zhang’s research appears in more than forty articles in leading journals, including Nature Materials, Science Translational Medicine, Science Advances, Nature Communications, eLife, Journal of the American Chemical Society, ACS Nano, Advanced Materials, Advanced Functional Materials, Macromolecules and ACS Macro Letters, and results more than twenty patent applications. He also helped to build the biotech startup, Lyndra, to push the gastric retentive drug delivery system into Phase III clinical trial. He is the scientific founder of OnQuality Pharmaceuticals, a clinical stage biotech to develop innovative drugs that improve the quality of cancer patients’ lives. Dr. Zhang received 1000 Plan Program for Young Talents in 2015. His current research interests include: novel treatments for adverse effects caused by anti-cancer therapies and non-absorbable materials (polymeric or inorganic) as drugs for metabolic diseases.
