Short Biography
Shoujun Zhu received his Ph.D. at Jilin University in 2014 under the supervision of Prof. Bai Yang and Junhu Zhang. After a two-year postdoctoral research in Hongjie Dai Lab at Stanford University, he further performed postdoctoral research with Dr. Xiaoyuan (Shawn) Chen at National Institute of Health (NIH) from 2017 to 2019. He joined Jilin University as a full professor since 2019. His research focuses on functional/targeting fluorophores and intravital bioimaging.
