He has received numerous awards and honors, including academician of Russian Academy of Engineering, Fellow of Aimbe, Fellow of RCS, and W. Simon Fellow of ICSC-World lab, United Nations.
Prof. Zhang gave us a talk on “Nanobiosensing – From Basic Research to Commercialization” at the University of Tokyo. The talk covered the full scope of nanobiosensing, which combines the newest research results in the cross-disciplines of chemistry, biology, and materials science with biosensing and bioanalysis to develop novel detection principles, sensing mechanisms, and device engineering methods. The lecture was also discussed on nanobiosensing technology, including the principles and application of biosensing, the design and biofunctionalization of bionanomaterials, as well as the methodology to develop biosensing devices and bioanalytical systems.
