|Dr. Hao Song received his B.S. in Chemistry from Nankai University, and his Ph.D. in Chemical & Biomolecular Engineering from the University of Houston. Before joining in NTU on November 2009, he worked as a postdoctoral fellow at the University of Texas, and a research associate at Duke University. His research interests are on the synthetic biology and bio-nanotechnology, focusing on microbial production of chemicals (including commodity chemicals & materials, functional foods and drugs) and environmental biotechnology, DNA-based nanotechnology. He has published over 50 research papers and reviews in top academic journals, including Nature Chemical Biology, Molecular Systems Biology, ACS Chemical Biology, ACS Nano, Applied & Environmental Microbiology, and AIChE Journal, etc. Dr. Song is a member of American Institute for Chemical Engineers (AIChE).|
