Dr. Peng Shi is a professor in the Department of Biomedical Engineering at City University of Hong Kong. He received his bachelor’s degree in electrical engineering from Wuhan University and a Ph.D. degree in Biomedical Engineering from Columbia University. After his postdoctoral training at MIT in Electrical Engineering and Biological Engineering, he joined CityU Hong Kong and has been a faculty member in the BME department since 2011. Dr. Shi works at the convergence between neuroscience and engineering by taking advantage of an interdisciplinary approach that involves nano-/micro-fabrication, microfluidics, ultra-fast optics, high-resolution microscopy, and imaging processing. He focuses on solving important emerging problems in translational neuro-engineering, especially in the development of high-throughput technology and screening platform for the discovery of novel therapeutic targets. His work has led to more than 70 publications in top-tier research journals, including Nature Material Review, Science Advances, Nature communications and Advanced Materials etc., and 12 international patents and disclosures, one of which has been the foundation technology of a spin-off biotech company. Dr. Shi received the Simon’s research award in 2010, and was elected to the 1000 China Young Talent program in 2015. He also received the President Award for research excellence in 2017, outstanding supervisor award in 2018 at CityU, and a special recognition as Young Scholars by World Cultural Council in 2018. Currently, he is an associate editor for the journal Brain Research.
