Dr. Shi received his Bachelor degree in Tsinghua University, Beijing. In 1995 when receiving his PhD degree in Biophysics from Johns Hopkins University, He was the Warner-Lambert/Parke-Davis Professor in the department of Molecular Biology at Princeton University. In June 2008, he was selected as a Howard Hughes Medical Instituteinvestigator.[1]He was appointed Vice Director of Tsinghua's Institute of Biomedicine and Vice Dean of Tsinghua's Department of Biological Sciences and Biotechnology in 2007. He was appointed Dean of Tsinghua's School of Life Sciences (replacing the Department of Biological Sciences and Biotechnology) in 2009. Shi got Raymond and Beverly Sackler International Prize in 2010 and the Gregori Aminoff Prize from the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences in 2014. He was selected as an academician of the Chinese Academy of Sciences.
Shi is interested in the areas including Structural biology of cancer, with a focus on key regulatory components in the apoptotic pathways and other important cellular processes, Structural biology of important membrane proteins and Structural mechanisms of macromolecular machineries.
