Lei Zhu pursued his Ph.D. studies at Jilin University. During this period, he did a two-year China Scholarship Council (CSC) Fellowship at the Laboratory of Molecular Imaging and Nanomedicine (LOMIN) of the National Institute of Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering (NIBIB), Bethesda, MD. After receiving his Ph.D. degree at Jilin in 2011, he returned to LOMIN as a Postdoctoral Fellow under the supervision of Dr. Xiaoyuan Chen. In 2012, he was appointed as an Associate Professor at Xiamen University. Dr. Zhu is interested in screening and selecting cancer-specific binding peptides; developing novel activatable probes for noninvasive early detection; and monitoring cancer therapy using multimodality imaging technologies including PET/SPECT, MRI, and photoacoustic and optical imaging. His current, primary project is the development of multi-modality imaging guided drug delivery platforms for cancer theranostics in vivo.
