Professor Mingjie Zhang

Founding Dean and Chair Professor, School of Life Sciences, Southern University of Science and Technology (SUSTech).

BSc (Fudan University, China); Ph.D. (University of Calgary, Canada); Postdoctoral training (Ontario Cancer Institute, University of Toronto).

Before becoming the Founding Dean of the School of Life Sciences, Southern University of Science and Technology (SUSTech) at the end of 2020, Prof Zhang was a Kerry Holdings Professor of Science, Senior Fellow of the Institute for Advanced Study, and Chair Professor in the Division of Life Science, HKUST. Research in Prof. Zhang’s laboratory has been focusing on two areas in the past 20 years. The first area concerns the structural and biochemical basis of neuronal signaling complex organization by scaffold proteins. The second area is how neurons develop polarity during their development and maintain the polarity in their adulthood. He has authored more than 200 research articles in the prestigious scientific journals including Science, Cell, Mol Cell, Nature Structural & Molecular Biology, Neuron, Nature Neuroscience, Nature Chemical Biology, Developmental Cell, PNAS, EMBO J, etc. Their breakthrough discoveries on phase separation-mediated synapse formation and function have far reaching implications in basic as well as translational research in neuroscience. About 20 Ph.D. graduates and postdoctoral fellows trained in his lab have established their independent research groups around the world.
