Professor Lijun Shang is a Professor of Biomedical Sciences at the School of Human Sciences. Before moving to London, he worked at various universities including; Lancaster University, University of Oxford and the University of Bradford. He has a PhD, MSc and BSc and is a Fellow of the Physiological Society (FPhysol) and a Fellow of The Higher Education Academy (FHEA).

Professor Shang teaches various modules within Biomedical Sciences at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels. His research is mainly focused on ion channel in health and disease.

He also studies biomedical and clinical applications of biomaterials and nanomaterials. Recently, he expanded his research interests into biological and chemical weapons and science convergence. His work has wide collaborations nationally and internationally.

Professor Shang has published over 80 journal papers, contributed to over 60 conference abstracts and edited 3 books.
