Dr. Qi-Huang Zheng, Ph.D. is an Associate Professor and Director of PET Radiochemistry in the Department of Radiology and Imaging Sciences at Indiana University School of Medicine. Dr. Zheng has received his B.S. (Chemistry, 1980-1984) and M.S. (Organic Chemistry, 1984-1987) from Xiamen University, China, and Ph.D. (Organic Chemistry, 1987-1990) from Zhongshan University, China. Dr. Zheng has pursued his postdoctoral research first at University of Chicago (Organic Chemistry, 1994), then at Indiana University Purdue University Indianapolis (Organic Chemistry, 1994), and eventually at Indiana University (Radiochemistry, 1995-1997). His research interests are design, synthesis and biological evaluation of new radiopharmaceuticals (tumor, brain and heart imaging agents) for use in the biomedical imaging technique positron emission tomography (PET) to study cancer, neuroscience and cardiovascular diseases. His research activities focus on the development of novel and potent enzyme-, receptor- and transporter-based PET carbon-11 and fluorine-18 radiotracers for the qualitative and quantitative assessment of physiologic changes in vivo, from initial evaluation in cell and animal models to evaluation in clinical trials. His research activities also include development, automation and production of PET radiotracers for preclinical and clinical applications. He has received the China Young Chemist Prize in 1991; China Guangdong Province Science and Technology Progress Achievement Award in 1995; Bioorganic & Medicinal Chemistry Letters Most Cited Paper 2006-2009 Award in 2009; and Bioorganic & Medicinal Chemistry Letters Outstanding Reviewer Award in 2015. He is serving as a Senior Editorial/Editorial Board Member in 19 scientific journals, an abstract reviewer for the Society of Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging (SNMMI) Annual Meeting, a manuscript reviewer for more than 60 scientific journals and a grant reviewer for more than 10 grant agencies/foundations. He has published over 300 research and review articles, meeting abstracts, and book chapters.
