Dr. Zhichao Liu's background spans the fields of chemistry, biology, and computer science. In the past eight years, he took part in several cutting-edge projects in both industry and academia. Specifically, he developed several high-efficacy, quality-control strategies of processing analytical techniques and applied them to the tobacco industry. Furthermore, Dr. Liu focused on developing the standard pipeline to balance the efficacy and safety in drug repositioning and drug-safety areas. The research aims to provide the standard in silico pipeline for drug repositioning and early drug-safety detection by retrieving, integrating, and organizing the information from chemical, biological, and clinical spaces. This helps the industry seek the optimal route to accelerate the drug-development efficacy from an advanced regulatory-sciences perspective. Recently, Dr. Liu's interest has shifted to apply Artificial Intelligence (AI) to solve regulatory-related questions and promote advanced regulatory sciences.
