Professor Zhongwei Gu received his B. Sci. and M. Sci in Polymer Science from Peking University, prior to serving as a senior visiting scholar in the Research Triangle Institute, RTP and the University of Utah, respectively from 1984 to 1986 and 1991 to 1993. He was appointed as a professor in 1994, and presently serves as the chief scientist of the National Basic Research Program of China (the 973 program), director of the National Engineering Research Center for Biomaterials at Sichuan University, vice-chairman of the Chinese Society for Biomaterials (CSBM), executive member of the council of the Chinese Materials Research Society (C-MRS) and Chinese Society for Biomedical Engineering (CSBME) and is a Fellow of international Biomaterials Science and Engineering (FBSE). His current research activities focus on the molecular design and controlled preparation of novel biomedical polymers, self-assembled biomaterials and nano-biomaterials, vectors for gene therapy, polymeric carriers and controlled drug delivery systems, biomaterials for molecular diagnosis, and biodegradable scaffolds for tissue engineering. Professor Zhongwei Gu has thrice being Chief Scientist of National Basic Research Program of China (National 973 Program) (1999-2004, 2005-2010, 2010-2015) and has being the PI of about 30 funding and research projects. Until now he has published more than 270 papers in Adv. Mater., Angew. Chem. Int. Ed., ACS Nano, Adv. Funct. Mater., Biomaterials, J. Control. Rel. and so on. He also has ~25 patents, composes/translates ~12 books and chapters, and is the invited speaker in many international and domestic conferences.
