Honggang Cui received a Bachelor's degree in Polymer Materials Science and Engineering from the Beijing University of Chemical Technology in 1999, a Master's degree in Materialogy/Chemical Engineering from Tsinghua University in 2002, and a Ph.D. degree in Materials Science and Engineering from the University of Delaware in 2007. He was a Postdoctoral Fellow between 2007 and 2010 in the department of Materials Science and Engineering and the Institute for BioNanotechnology in Medicine at Northwestern University. He joined the Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering and Institute for NanoBiotechnology at the Johns Hopkins University as Assistant Professor in 2010 and was promoted to Associate Professor with Tenure in 2017. He holds joint appointments in the Department of Material Science and Engineering, the Department of Oncology and Sidney Kimmel Comprehensive Cancer Center, and the Center for Nanomedicine of Wilmer Eye Institute at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. His work in molecular assembly and biomolecular engineering has led to 116 published manuscripts in journals such as Science, Cell, JACS, and Journal of Controlled Release. In addition, the Cui Lab has filed 15 invention disclosures over the past 7 years, two of which have been licensed to industrial partners. Dr. Cui received a number of recognitions including the NSF CAREER Award, the Fellow of American Institute of Medical and Biological Engineering, the Tsinghua Global Scholars Fellowship, the 3M Non-Tenured Faculty Award, Johns Hopkins Catalyst Award, and Johns Hopkins Discovery Award. He is currently serving on the Advisory Board of three peer-reviewed journals, and has served as Guest Editors for Biomaterials, Chemical Society Reviews, Theranostics, Advanced Drug Delivery Reviews, and Journal of Controlled Release.
