        一、奖项设立背景

赵学明教授是将代谢工程学科引入中国的先驱者之一。1991年在《科学》杂志发表两篇代谢工程开创性论文后,赵学明教授在中国组织了一系列代谢工程研讨会和学术会议,并经常邀请国外教授前来讲学。经他倡议,代谢工程作为独立学科获得了资助,并开设了相关课程。1995年,他在中国率先以《生物反应工程原理与代谢工程:原理与方法》(Bioreaction Engineering Principles and Metabolic Engineering: Principles and Methodologies)为教材,开设了代谢工程的研究生课程。2003年,经他推荐,全球经典教材系列丛书“Bioreaction Engineering Principles”第二版的中文翻译版《生物反应工程原理》由化学工业出版社出版。同年,由他组织翻译的“Metabolic Engineering: Principles and Methodologies”中译本《代谢工程:原理与方法》在中国出版。2015年,由赵教授牵头组织并撰写的全新中文版代谢工程教科书在中国出版。

赵学明教授1993年至2015年任天津大学化学工程系全职教授,其中1997年至2003年任天津大学化学工程学院院长,该学院在中国化学工程领域连续多年排名第一。22年的学术生涯中,赵教授共发表了200多篇研究论文,培养的许多学生也已成为全球范围内代谢工程领域的资深教授和专家。

不管是为中国学生提供中文版代谢工程教科书还是培养代谢工程方面的人才,赵学明教授都一直致力于代谢工程学科在中国的发展。为此,国际代谢工程学会决定以他的名义设立一个重要的讲座奖。赵学明讲座奖将与在中国举办的国际代谢工程峰会相结合,每两年授予一位在代谢工程领域做出卓越贡献的中国研究人员。首届赵学明代谢工程讲座奖将于2019年代谢工程峰会颁发。

二、主办单位

国际代谢工程学会(International Metabolic Engineering Society, IMES)

三、奖励

获奖者将被授予一个奖牌,并有资格在代谢工程峰会上做45分钟的报告(2019年代谢工程峰会拟定于20191020-22日在天津召开)。

四、说明

1. 候选人资格

在代谢工程领域任职的中国大学/研究所的教授/研究员

Xueming Zhao Lectureship Award

in Metabolic Engineering

Professor Xueming Zhao was one of the pioneers in the introduction of metabolic engineering in China. Following the publication of two seminal papers in Science in 1991 he established seminars and conferences on metabolic engineering in China, often inviting foreign professors to give lectures. He also lobbied for establishing metabolic engineering as an independent program for grants applications as well as he initiated courses about metabolic engineering. In 1995, he succeeded in opening up the first course about metabolic engineering for graduate students in China, using the textbooks named Bioreaction Engineering Principles and Metabolic Engineering: Principles and Methodologies. In 2003, he introduced the 2nd Edition of Bioreaction Engineering Principles to the Chemical Industry Press in the series of World Famous Textbooks to be published in China. He also took leadership in translating Metabolic Engineering: Principles and Methodologies to Chinese, which was also published in China in 2003. Subsequently he took leadership in writing a new textbook on metabolic engineering in Chinese, which was published in 2015.

 

Professor Xueming Zhao established his independent research group as a full professor at the Department of Chemical Engineering at Tianjin University in 1993, and retired there in 2015. During 1997-2003, he was appointed as the Dean of College of Chemical Engineering at Tianjin University, which ranked 1st in the area of Chemical Engineering in China. He has authored and co-authored more than 200 research articles and many of his former students have become professors and senior research scientists in the field of metabolic engineering worldwide.

 

Thus, both through providing textbooks on metabolic engineering in Chinese and through educating many current academics in the field of metabolic engineering, Xueming Zhao has been instrumental in establishing this field as a scientific discipline in China. It is for this reason that the International Metabolic Engineering Society has decided to establish a prestigious lectureship in his name. This Xueming Zhao Lectureship will be given to a prominent Chinese researcher in the field of metabolic engineering every second year in connection with the Metabolic Engineering Summit held in China. The winner will receive a plaque and will have to give a 45-minute lecture at the Metabolic Engineering Summit.
