Dongyuan Zhao was born in Shenyang, Liaoning Province in June 1963. He was a undergraduate student at Jilin University (1980-84), got his Master degree from Chemistry Department at Jilin University (1987), and a from Jilin University and Dalin Institute of Chemical Physics (1990). He began his academic career almost immediately as a lecturer in Chemical Engineering Department at the Shenyang Institute of Chemical Technology, and was promoted to an Associate Professor in 1992. In 1992-93, he was a visiting scholar in the Chemistry Department of University of Regina. After postdoctoral research at the Weizmann Institute of Science (with Prof. Daniella Goldfarb, 1993-94), University of Houston (with Prof. Larry Kevan, 1995-96), and University of California at Santa Barbara (with Prof. Galen D. Stucky, 1996-98), he joined the faculty of the Fudan University in Dec.1998, where he is now Professor in the Department of Chemistry.

Prof. Zhao has been active in academia, serving as pluralistic professors of East China Normal University, Xiamen University and so on. He was the member of academic committees in Nano Sci&Tech Research Center at Xiamen University, Nano Sci&Tech Research Center at Nanjing University and the State Key Laboratory of Advanced Functional Ceramic Materials at Shanghai Institute of Ceramics. He was the Vice-Editor-of-Chief of the Chinese Science Bulletin, and also joined the editorial board of some professional journals, such as Acta Petrolei Sinica and the Journal of Fuel Chemistry And Technology. He has been in charge of 18 key and major programs of National Natural Science Foundation of China (NSFC) and Ministry of Science and Technology. In addition, he was also the technology consultant of SBA Inc. (USA).Dr. Zhao was elected the 4-year member and secretary of the International Mesostructured Material Association (IMMA) council in 2002. Recent honors include President, the 5th International Mesostructured Materials Symposium in Shanghai (2006), Feinberg Fellowship at Weizmann Institute of Science, Distinguished Post-doctoral Award (American Chemical Society, 1998), New Century Distinguished Young Professor Award (Ministry of Education, 1999), Outstanding Young Scientist Award (National Natural Science Foundation of China, 1999), Cheung Kong Program Special Professorship (Ministry of Education, 2000), Shanghai Scientific Talent (2002), Mudan Research Prize (2002), First Prize of Shanghai Science and Technology Promotion Prize (2002), and he was recognized as one of 48 top authors in the past fifteen years by Adv. Mater. He has published more than 140 papers, reviews, and communications, including 2 in Science, 2 in Nature, 1 in Nature Materials , 7 in J. Am. Chem. Soc ., 5 in Angew. Chem. Int. Ed. , 8 in Adv. Mater ., 3 in Nano. Lett. , and have 6 US Patents, 22 China Patents. He has been invited to write review papers for Encyclopedia of Nanoscience and Nanotechnology and Current Opinion in Solid State and Materials . He has been a keynote, or named lecturer at more than 10 internatioanl symposia and invited to give more than 30 lectures at some renowned universities and institutes, for example, University of California at Berkeley. To date, he has educated 18 Ph.D. students, 10 M.S. students and 9 postdoctoral associates.
