The research group has 10 full-time researchers (team leader, associate researcher, postdoctoral fellow, assistant researcher, etc.), more than 20 postgraduates, with an average age of about 30 years old.
1. Leader of the research group
Li zigang, Ph.D., graduated from the university of science and technology of China (ustc) with a bachelor's degree in 2001. He received his doctorate in chemistry from the university of Chicago in 2008.In 2010, he returned to China and won the title of distinguished researcher of the "hundred talents plan" of Peking University. Currently, he is the doctoral supervisor and project leader of the chemical genomics major of Peking University.The research team is committed to the chemical and biological intersection of chemical solutions to biological problems.
Research areas include polypeptide engineering and microbial research, including the construction of the secondary structure methodology for stable polypeptides, the use of polypeptide drugs in important human diseases, and the development of antiviral polypeptides.In recent years, the journal Science Advances, Nature Chemical Biology, Cell Chemical Biology, Proc. Natl. Acad. Sci., j. Am. Chem. Soc., Angew. Chem. Int. Ed., j. Med. Chem., Chemical Science, CancerMore than 80 papers have been published in international top academic journals such as research and Chemical Reviews, and the research results have been featured on the cover of high-level magazines for many times, and have received extensive attention from international and domestic peers. Besides, it has carried out international cooperation on a number of innovative new drug technologies with multinational pharmaceutical companies such as Pfizer, bayer healthcare and roche China.

2. Deputy leader of the research group, Yin feng
Dr. Yin feng, who graduated from Peking University in 2014 with a major in cell biology, has conducted in-depth research in the field of cancer and tumor stem cell epigenetics.From 2014 to 2015, he worked as a postdoctoral fellow at nanyang technological university in Singapore, where he studied the delivery system of cancer-targeted nanomaterials, and designed and developed a nano-silicon fluorescent probe targeting pancreatic cancer and a pancreatic cancer treatment complex using gold nanorods as gene/anticancer drug dual carrier.From 2016 to 2017, I worked as a postdoctoral fellow in professor li zigang's research group of shenzhen graduate school of Peking University, engaged in biomedical research on stable peptides and research on peptide delivery system. At the end of 2017, I served as an associate researcher, and designed and developed a series of stable peptide inhibitors with anti-cancer activity.In the past five years, I have applied for 7 patents (1 authorization) and published more than 40 articles in international academic journals (25 articles by the first author and corresponding author).They have been published in internationally renowned academic journals such as Cancer Research, Nano Letter, Material Horizons, Chemical Science, Coordination Chemistry Reviews, Theranostics, Advance Materials, Cell Reports, Chemistry Communication, etc.
