Laboratory of protein design and bioelectronic interfaces
Rui Qing leads the Laboratory of protein design and bioelectronic interfaces in School of Life Sciences and Biotechnology at Shanghai Jiao Tong University. He earned his Ph.D. degree in Materials Science and worked on advanced battery technology at University of Florida, received postdoctoral training in Media Lab and was a research scientist at Koch Institute for Integrative Cancer Research at MIT. Dr. Qing has a multi-disciplinary scientific background in both material science and molecular biology. He co-developed with Dr. Shuguang Zhang the QTY code for membrane protein solubilization, and expanded its application in therapeutics and biomimetic sensing platforms. The research focus of the Lab is to advance the design methodology of membrane proteins and the molecular level integration in bioelectronics, so as to address the societal challenges in human health and sustainability.
