Biomedical Materials Laboratory


Biomedical materials laboratory aims to develop new biomedical materials with high performance and clinical transformation potential through interdisciplinary innovation aiming at the key scientific problems to be solved in clinical application of biomedical materials. Research interests include photothermal immunotherapy, drug delivery, biological imaging, etc.

Associate Professor Zhou Benqing, director of the laboratory, joined Shantou University in 2019. The main research interests are the construction of new biomaterials and the accurate diagnosis and treatment of tumor. In 2017, Dr. Zhou Benqing received his doctoral degree from Donghua University. When he graduated, he was awarded the national scholarship for doctoral students, excellent doctoral dissertation of Donghua University and other honorary titles. After that, he did postdoctoral research in Shenzhen University of Central Oklahoma in the United States, focusing on photothermal immunotherapy of cancer. He presided over the National Natural Science Foundation of China Youth Fund projects, special funding projects of China Postdoctoral Science Foundation, general projects of China Postdoctoral Science Foundation, and Shenzhen basic research free exploration projects. Up to now, Dr. Zhou Benqing has published 32 SCI papers, among which 15 are the first or corresponding authors, including advanced science, Angewandte, Chemistry International Edition, chemical engineering journal, nanoscale, ACS Applied Materials & interfaces and other major journals. The research results have been cited 750 times by SCI, and h index is 16. He has published 6 academic conference papers and 1 monograph chapter, and applied for 11 Chinese invention patents, 6 of which have been authorized.
