Qian Cheng, Ph.D.
Doctor Qian Cheng graduated from the University of Science and Technology of China in 2000 and thereafter completed a Doctorate of Philosophy in Pharmaceutical Sciences with a concentration in Natural Products and Medicinal Chemistry at the University of Arizona. During his study at the College of Pharmacy, Qian completed a graduate thesis on the in vitro reconstruction of the biosynthetic machinery of enterocin, a complicated aromatic polyketide antibiotic. Reported as a cover story in Nature Chemical Biology, Cheng is the first researcher to reconstruct the entire biosynthetic pathway in vitro using up to twelve purified enzymes.
Qian immediately began his career in Toxicology at Vanderbilt University Department of Biochemistry as a Post-Doctoral Fellow. His studies aimed at understanding the metabolism of steroids by cytochrome P450s and research interests included enzyme kinetics and characterization of protein adducts by ESI-MS and MALDI-TOF. A novel cellular dipentaenone was identified and characterized by LCMS/GCMS/NMR. Needless to say, Dr. Cheng is effectively familiar with all forms of method development for a vast array of analytes and their respective scientific instruments. As Karemore Labs’ Lab Director, Dr. Cheng will quickly and accurately build any test profile requested by physicians or providers. Cheng is regarded as a Clinical Chemist by National Registry of Certified Chemists (NRCC). Constantly updating and curtailing test menus to the ever-changing market, Dr. Cheng keeps the LC-MS/MS runtimes low, ensuring fast results. With many CLIA licenses and certifications to uphold, Dr. Qian Cheng guarantees precision and accuracy for every result given from each specimen to enter our Laboratory.
