Dr. Xiangyang Shi worked at the Michigan Institute for Nanotechnology in Medicine and Biological Sciences (MNIMBS), University of Michigan, Ann Arbor from May 2002 till August 2008. He started as Research Fellow, was appointed as a Research Associate II in MNIMBS in May 2003 and as a Research Investigator in June 2005. His appointment to Research Assistant Professor per Sept. 1, 2008 was approved. He came to MNIMBS after one year's Max-Planck Fellowship and one year's postdoctoral training at California State University, Los Angeles. He earned his Ph.D. in Organic Chemistry (1998) and his M.S. in Applied Chemistry (1995) at the Institute of Photographic Chemistry, the Chinese Academy of Sciences, and Beijing Institute of Technology, respectively.
He is now a Professor Professor at Donghua University in Shanghai, P.R. China.
Dr. Shi's research involves synthesis, characterization, and self-assembly of polymers, dendrimers, and organic⁄inorganic hybrid nanocomposite materials for biomedical, environmental, and materials applications. Dr. Shi specializes in the fields of dendrimer-based nanomedicine in the aspects of targeted drug delivery and contrast imaging agents (e.g., CT and MRI) for disease diagnosis. Currently, he is also developing various electrospun polymer nanofibers, polymer/inorganic hybrid nanofiber composites for both tissue engineering and environmental remediation applications.
Dr. Shi is a member of the American Chemical Society and Sigma Xi. He serves as a reviewer of Journal of the American Chemical Society, Chemical Communications, Lab on a Chip, Journal of Physical Chemistry B, Biomacromolecules, Journal of Materials Chemistry, European Journal of Inorganic Chemistry, Nanotechnology, Analyst, Molecular Biosystems, Green Chemistry, Physical Chemistry Chemical Physics, Colloids and Surfaces A: Physicochemical Engineering Aspects, and Molecules.
