Dr. Daniel Xiang, a skilled and experienced biochemist and molecular biologist, holds a Bachelor degree in animal medicine(veterinary medicine) from Hunan Agricultural University, a Master degree in virology and molecular biology from Wuhan University and a PhD in Biochemistry and molecular biology from University of Science and Technology of China (USTC). He is expert and experienced in the following fields: isolation and identification of animal virus, development of recombinant virus vaccine, preparation of monoclonal antibodies, cell culture, construction of recombinant virus, gene cloning and protein expression in E.coli, yeast and animal cells, protein engineering, protein refolding in vitro, and DNA vaccine. In addition, he is interested in improvement of microbial fuel cells by genetic engineering of E.coli. From 2007-2010, He worked on the project of microbial fuel cells by genetic engineering of E.coli in Nanyang Technological University, Singapore, and thereafter, between 2010-2011, he went to University of Virginia for HIV vaccine research. Untill now, he has published at least 10 research papers in national and international peer-reviewed journals. Dr. Daniel Xiang is now the founder and owner of Guangzhou Mefold Biotech company, China. He independantly invented a novel way of protein refolding in vitro,with 100% efficiency for any inclusion body proteins from E.coli.
