Ming Zhou received his BSc and MSc in chemistry from the University of Science and Technology of China in 1984 and 1987, respectively. In 1995, he got his PhD in Chemistry from the University of Montpellier II in France. His research experiences and interests include medical diagnostics, organic electronics and other technological sectors in which chemistry can play a critical role. After working with academia, industry and government in Germany, France and Canada for more than 15 years, he joined the Chinese Academy of Sciences in 2007 as a professor and, concurrently, founded SunaTech Inc., a chemical joint venture that keeps its eyes on innovative technologies. Beyond research, he has experience in venture capital investment, industrial product development and starting up hi-tech ventures in Canada and in China.
