Biographical Information:

Dr. Hongjing Dou grew up in Henan, a province in the central part of China, where she obtained her BSc in Chemistry and M.E. in Polymer materials. She then moved to Shanghai in 2000 to pursue PhD under the supervision of Prof. Ming Jiang at Fudan University. Her work there focused on the synthesis of polysaccharides-based biomacromolecules and their co-assembly with synthetic polymers. After obtaining her PhD in 2003, Hongjing joined Shanghai Jiao Tong University (SJTU) as a lecturer, and was then appointed as an associate professor in 2008 and a professor in 2015. Between 2009 and 2010, Hongjing spent 14 months in Prof. Guojun Liu’s group at Queen’s University in Canada, where she worked on the self-assembly behavior of linear triblock terpolymers. In February of 2015, Hongjing was awarded the Marie-Curie International Incoming Research Fellowship to support her research as a visiting scholar in University of Bristol with the supervision of Profs. Ian Manners and Stephen Mann.



Research Fields:

Dr. Dou’s main research field at SJTU is bionanomaterials and their theranostic applications.  She has completed several projects in this area, as a project leader, she is responsible for a research group of 6 graduate students that is developing novel co-assembly systems of biomacromolecules and synthetic polymers, as well as exploring their biomedical application in drug delivery and medical imaging.
