Ling Peng is a research director at the French National Scientific Research Center (CNRS).
Ling Peng carried out her undergraduate study in polymer chemistry with Prof. Chen Rongshi at Nanjing University in China, her PhD program in organic chemistry with Prof. Albert Eschenmoser at Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich in Switzerland, and her postdoctoral research in Pharmacy with Prof. Maurice Goeldner at Louis Pasteur University of Strasbourg in France.
She was recruited as a research scientist in CNRS in 1997, and promoted as a CNRS research director in 2008. She is currently a group leader at the Interdisciplinary Center on Nanoscience in Marseille (CINaM) in France, and working actively in developing multifunctional dendrimers as intelligent nanomaterials for drug and gene delivery, molecular probes for exploring biological events and drug discovery.
She has co-authored more than 100 scientific papers, 6 patents and 15 book chapters. Dr. Ling Peng has also coordinated and participated in different European projects. Her research team has been labelled by La Ligue Contre le Cancer in France since 2016, and she was awarded with the Prize of Dr and Mrs Henri Labbé of the French Academy of Sciences in 2017.
Research activities in the group of Dr. Ling PENG in CINaM-CNRS are focused on developing dendrimer nanotechnology-based delivery systems for nucleic acid therapeutics. The laboratory has all the key facilities and expertise in synthesizing, characterizing and evaluating the dendrimer molecules and nanosystems for ON delivery. The host institute has full access to NMR, MS, HPLC, DLS, TEM, cell culture and all the necessary infrastructure and arrangement in place to host Jing Wu.
