Xiangyang Shi received B.S. (chemistry, Henan Normal University, Xinxiang), M.E. (applied chemistry, Beijing Institute of technology, Beijing), and Ph.D. (organic chemistry, Institute of Photographic Chemistry, the Chinese Academy of Sciences, Beijing) degrees in 1992, 1995, and 1998, respectively. He worked as a Postdoctoral Fellow at Tsinghua University (1998–2000, Beijing) and Max-Planck Institute of Colloids and Interfaces (2000-2001, Potsdam, Germany). He then moved to California State University, Los Angeles (2001-2002) as a Visiting Scholar. From 2002 to 2008, he worked as a Research Fellow, Research Associate II, Research Investigator, and Research Assistant Professor at the University of Michigan. He then became a professor of special appointment both in Donghua University and in Shanghai Institutions of High Learning (Eastern Scholar) in 2008. Shi has authored or coauthored more than 118 referred journal articles and 94 technical conference abstracts or proceeding papers, along with 6 invited book chapters and 29 patents. His research expertise includes dendrimer chemistry and related nanomedicinal applications, in particular, cancer diagnosis and therapy. He is also developing nanofiber-based technology with an emphasis on the synthesis and fabrication of bioscaffolding materials in tissue engineering applications and the immobilization of reactive nanoparticles within nanofibrous mats for environmental applications.
