Prof. Buyong Ma
Shanghai Jiaotong University, China
Professor Buyong Ma has more than 25 years experiences in the computational studies of protein structure and function, protein engineering, and antibody-antigen recognition. He has proposed “conformation selection” theory which is widely used in explaining drug-target interaction. Dr. Ma received his Ph.D. in physical chemistry from the University of Georgia at Athens in 1995 and continued his postdoctoral training in Professor Norman Allinger’s Lab working on computational chemistry. He joined NCI/NIH in 1998. In 2019, Dr. Ma accepted a tenured professor position in the school of pharmacy, Shanghai Jiaotong University, focusing on antibody drug design. He has published more than 200 papers, with google citation of 20848 and H-index 66.
