Dr Shuguang Yuan finished his doctoral dissertation with the supports of Maria Curia Fellowship. It was conducted in three different institutes in Europe, including Swiss Federal Institute of Technology Lausanne (EPFL, Switzerland), Polish Academy of Science (Poland) and KULeuven University (Belgium). He has been in the list of "Global Top 2% Scientists" since 2022.
His research is mainly focusing on G protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs) molecular mechanism as well as drug discovery via computational biology and artificial intelligence.
In June 2013, he was awarded with a PhD title with the honor of distinguished thesis. Following that, he was offered the Marie Curie ETH Postdoc Fellowship. In 2014, Dr. Yuan proposed a theory about the activation mechanism and the continuous water channel of GPCRs, which could be used to guide the design of agonist/antagonist molecules.
Furthermore, Dr. Yuan worked in big pharma in Basel in Switzerland for several years. He has advanced several of his designed molecules into clinical trials sucessfully.
