  专家简介:

  Professor Yong Zhu is a tenured full professor at Department of Biology in East Carolina University (ECU). He is also a Minjiang Chair Visiting Professor of Xiamen University in China since 2012, and a Chair Professor at Guangdong Ocean University since 2017. Professor Zhu is a member of editorial board of General and Comparative Endocrinology, and an associate editor for Frontiers in Experimental Endocrinology.

  Professor Zhu’s research interests are to understand regulation of ovulation and oocyte maturation in vertebrates, the functions and signaling of steroid hormones and their receptors in reproduction and behaviors as well as genomic and nongenomic signaling pathways of steroids. Professor Zhu has laid the foundation for studying behaviors, oocyte maturation and ovulation, signaling and functions of steroid receptors by developing zebrafish as an alternative model. Professor Zhu had also made a breakthrough contribution by identifying and characterizing a novel class of membrane progestin receptor family in all vertebrates. His publications have high citations and his research has been funded by USA National Science foundation, North Carolina Biotechnology Center, and USA National Institute of Health.

  Professor Zhu earned his B.S. from Xiamen University in China (1984), and M.Sc (1988) and PhD (1991) from the University of Tokyo. He was a research scientist at Central Research Institute Maruha Co. Japan (1991-1992), and a postdoctoral fellow (1992-1993) and subsequently a research associate at University of Texas at Austin from (1993-2001). He joined the East Carolina University faculty as an assistant professor in 2002. He was promoted to associate professor with tenure in 2008, and to full professor with tenure in 2015. He was selected for Hundred Talents Program Award Chinese Academy of Sciences in 2002. He had received multiple research awards and currently is a candidate for a Life-Time Achievement Award at ECU, the highest honor at the university. Professor Zhu has served on many domestic and international grant review panels including NSF review panels, ad-hoc reviewer for NIH Director’s Pioneer Award, and organized many international symposia.
