On August 21st-23rd, the Symposium of the national enzyme engineering and glyco-engineering in 2015 was held in Zhenjiang, Jiangsu province,which was sponsored by the enzyme engineering specialized committee of Chinese society for microbiology, the glyco-engineering specialized committee of Chinese society for bioengineering and Zhenjiang Dongfang bioengineering Co. Ltd. About 380 representatives from 72 research institutions, universities and enterprises attended this symposium. In the opening ceremony, welcoming speeches were given by Ding Chunhua who is the chairman of this symposium and the president of Zhenjiang Dongfang bioengineering Co. Ltd, along with Prof. Jin Cheng from Institute of Microbiology Chinese Academy of Sciences. In addition, congratulations for the opening of this symposium were expressed from Yang Haihua , deputy secretary-general of Chinese society for microbiology along with Ma Shuheng , vice chairman and secretary-general of Chinese society of bioengineering.
After the opening ceremony, a grand awarding ceremony was held.Prof. Qu Yinbo from Shandong University received the 4th “National enzyme engineering outstanding contribution award” for his outstanding contribution to the research and application of cellulase. “Zhang Shuzheng glyco-science outstanding contribution award” was given to Prof. Shao Feng from Beijing Institute of Biological Sciences and Prof.Ye Xinshan from Peking University for their outstanding work on the glycosylation mechanisms of host innate immunity system by bacterial infection and glycochemistry, respectively. Prof. Wang Zhongfu from Northwest University, Prof. Cao Hongzhi from the national glyco-engineering research center in Shandong University and Prof. Yin Heng from our institute were honored with “Zhang Shuzheng glyco-science award for outstanding youth” for their work on glycomics, chemical glycobiology and glyco-engineering,respectively.
The “Zhang Shuzheng glyco-science award” is established by the glyco-engineering specialized committee of Chinese society for biology engineering which is named after Zhang Shuzheng , the national well-known academician of microbiology and glycobiology. The award is designed to honor the researchers who make great contribution to the field of glycobiology and glyco-engineering.(Photo/ Text by Wang wenxia/Zhang xu)
