Lu Zhongxian, Ph.D

Executive Director of Key Lab of  Metabolic Disease, Xiamen City


Zhongxian Lu received his Ph.D degree in Physiology from China  Agricultural University, Beijing, China. He had postdoctoral training with Dr.  Yeguang Chen at University of California Riverside, USA, from 2000-2002. Then,  Dr. Lu moved to University of California Irvine and worked as a postdoctoral  fellow from 2002-2006, and later as an assistant project scientist at Dr. Bogi  Andersen’s Lab. In 2007, Dr. Lu was employed as a professor in Institute for  Biomedical Research & School of Pharmaceutical Sciences, Xiamen University,  China.

Research  Interests:

The novel molecular therapeutic target is hope for some complex  diseases, such as cancer, diabetes, obesity, etc. Our research focuses on the  identification of original molecular therapeutic targets by discovering the  regulation of important proteins (such as Shp2, Gab2, AGR2) on the metabolic  disease, cancer, reproductive system diseases with transgenic animal model and  disease animal model. We also screen and develop potential new drugs against  these targets from nature product and chemical molecule.

Awards and  Honors:

2012.4, “Qingyuan” Research and Teaching Award from  Xiamen University,

2011.6, New Century Excellent Talents in Fujian  Province from Education Department of Fujian Province

2004.4, Postdoctoral fellowship award from  Department of Defense Breast Cancer Research Program (BRCP).
