Research Profile

Shi Qinghua, professor and Ph.D. supervisor, is selected into Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) Hundred Talents Program and winner of National Natural Science Funds for Distinguished Young Scholars.
In 1998 he graduated from Nanjing Normal University and obtained his Ph.D. degree. From October 1992 to November 1993, as a visiting scholar, he studied at GSF-National Research Center for Environment and Health, Germany. From October 1996 to December 1997, as a jointly trained Ph.D. candidate, he studied at GSF-National Research Center for Environment and Health, Germany, and Nanjing Normal University, China. From November 1998 to December 2001, he served as postdoctoral fellow at University of Calgary, Canada. From January 2002 to December 2004, he served as research fellow at Harvard Medical School, USA. In 2004 he was selected into CAS Hundred Talents Program, and in 2005 he gained the selective support of the CAS Hundred Talents Program. In 2006, he took charge of the projects with important directions of “Knowledge Innovation Program” of CAS. In 2007 he won the support of National Natural Science Founds for Distinguished Young Scholars, and selected to be Research Chair for the national major research project “Molecular Regulation of Follicular Development”. Now he is a Principal Investigator at Hefei National Laboratory for Physical Sciences at Microscale, professor at School of Life Sciences, University of Science and Technology of China (USTC). Over the last decade, he has published more than 30 papers in Nature, American Journal of Human Genetics, Cell Research and other peer-reviewed SCI journals as first or corresponding authors. These papers have been cited about 900 times by colleagues.
