   Dr. Xiaochao Xiong(熊小超)who is currently employed as a senior research associateat WSU(华盛顿州立大学). Prior to joining WSU, he was a postdoctoral research associate at University of California, Davis (UC Davis,加州大学戴维斯分校 ), where he was responsible for leading a project by engineering the cellulolytic fungus Neurosporacrassa for directly producing cellobiose and cellobionic acid from lignocellulosic biomass. He won his Ph. D degree in the Institute of Process Engineering, Chinese Academy of Sciences (中科院过程所). These efforts contributed to building a new biochemical platform for fuels and chemicals production by consolidated bioprocessing of lignocellulosic biomass.

Dr. Xiong has a great experience of design and engineering of microbial cell factory, with specific interests of metabolic engineering of non-model organisms for industrial applications. He published over 30 refereed journal papers, and co-inventor in a patent. He also delivered a few of presentations at the different conferences. In WSU, he has been serving as a project leader for microbial lipid platform, and lab manager for the entire group. He developed the synthetic biology tools for the oleaginous bacteria of Rhodococcus sp. and yeast including Y. lipolytica from scratch. The usability of the genetic manipulation systems has been proved by metabolic engineering of the oleaginous strains for producing biofuels and value-added oleochemical. The team also shared the developed genetic tools with the scientists outside WSU. Recently, we have used the pathway modeling methods such as flux balance analysis (FBA) to guide our strain engineering for lipid production. The quantitate analysis and prediction will further assist our metabolic engineering work.

Besides conducting these scientific activities, Dr. Xiong started to pursue the commercialization opportunities. As an advisor, he organized two teams from WSU to participate in the Environmental Innovation Challenge (EIC) sponsored by Alaska Airlines, and both teams won the funding to build prototypes. One of the teams earned the privilege of moving on to the next step in this competition. His solid background in metabolic engineering and other related experience can be well integrated in this project.
