Prof. Sheng-Xiang Lin
Dr. Sheng-Xiang Lin is a tenured full professor with the Oncology and Molecular Endocrinology Research Center, Laval University Medical Center, Quebec, Canada. Its first structural biology laboratory was established by him. The first human steroid enzyme 3D-structure for the “17beta-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase 1” was determined by his lab. He has also revealed the critical structure-bioactivity relationships for many human enzymes that are important to treat various human diseases, particularly those related to endocrinology and cancer. As of January 2018, Prof. Lin has published over 150 papers with H-index over 37 in high impact factor journals, leading to many useful findings for drug development (see, e.g., J. Am. Chem. Soc., 2016, 138, 16212). Prof. Dr. Lin’s awards include the Commemorative Medal of 125th Anniversary of the Canadian Confederation (1993), the Bai Yu Lan Prize for outstanding scientists (1999, Shanghai), and the Canada research professor awards (from 1990 to 2004). He was the Chair of the 11th International Conference on the Crystallization of Biological Macromolecules (2006), and the Corresponding Editor of the Journal of Steroid Biochemistry and Molecular Biology.
