Dr. Xing-Jie Liang currently is deputy director of Key Laboratory for Biomedical Effects of Nanomaterials and Nanosafety, Chinese Academy of Sciences and a principal investigator at Division of Nanomedicine and Nanobiology, National Center for Nanoscience and Technology of China. Dr. Liang finished his postdoc with Dr. Michael M. Gottesman at Laboratory of Cell Biology, Center for Cancer Research, NCI, NIH, Bethesda, Maryland. Then, he worked as a Research Fellow at Surgical Neurology Branch, NINDS for 2 years. In 2007, he was an assistant professor at Department of Radiology, School of Medicine, Howard University. Dr. Liang is current Committee member of China-US Bilateral Symposium of Cancer Nanotechnology and Nanomedicine. His research interests are in elucidating mechanisms to improve nanomedicinal bioavailability by nanotechnology in vivo, and novel strategies to increase therapeutic effect on cancers and AIDS. Developing drug delivery strategies for prevention/treatment of AIDS and cancers are current program ongoing in Dr. Liang's lab based on understanding of basic physio-chemical and biological processes of nanomedicine.
