We are very pleased to welcome Professor Chuan Zhang as an Associate Editor for Biomaterials Science


Chuan Zhang is a Professor in the School of Chemistry and Chemical Engineering, Shanghai Jiao Tong University. His research interests focus on the developments of novel functional nucleic acids and nucleic acid-based therapeutics, nucleic acid nanotechnology and supramolecular self-assembly, as well as drug and gene delivery. He was the recipient of the Qiu Shi Outstanding Young Scholar Award (Qiu Shi Science & Technologies Foundation, Hong Kong, 2014) and the National Science Fund for Distinguished Young Scholars of China (NSFC, 2022).


He has given his thoughts on Biomaterials Science as a journal and its future directions:

“In my feeling, I believe Biomaterials Science has established a good reputation in the related fields of chemistry, materials science and engineering, biology, as well as biotechnology and nanotechnology. In each issue, many smart ideas and new technology are published. Yet, the ultimate goal for publishing our research results is either revealing some new insights of fundamental principles or providing beneficial guidance for practical uses. Probably Biomaterials Science can try to draw more attention from doctors (a big group of researchers) working in different departments of the hospitals and publish more collaborative and clinic problem driven investigations. As such, Biomaterials Science will become a bridge between fundamental study and real translational application.”
