Xia Xianzhu, a male researcher and doctoral supervisor, was born in January 1939 and graduated from Nanjing Agricultural University in August 1965. He is an academician of Chinese Academy of Engineering, and China's famous expert in animal virology. He won third-class merit three times. In 2002, he won the third "Major Contribution Award of Professional Technology of the PLA". He has won 3 second prizes and 1 third prize of National Scientific and Technological Progress, 8 second prizes and 9 third prizes of Military (provincial and ministerial level) Scientific and Technological Progress. He has published 3 monographs and more than 400 papers. Over the years, he has trained more than 100 doctoral, master's and students, and provided a large number of excellent military and civilian personnel. He has been engaged in the teaching and research of animal infectious diseases and animal viral diseases for a long time. He mainly worked on the study of prevention and control of important diseases of military animals and wild animals and zoonoses. He has undertaken more than 50 national, military, provincial and ministerial levels’ research projects of the Ministry of Agriculture, the State Forestry Administration, the Ministry of Health, the National Natural Science Foundation of China. More than 10 animal viruses have been isolated. Fatal canine distemper virus and coronavirus infection in giant pandas were first discovered and confirmed in the world; He also found highly pathogenic avian influenza virus (HPAI) in tigers of big cats. He carried out systematic research on the prevention and control of important diseases of military animals; A series of biological preparations have been successfully developed for the prevention of virus diseases in dogs, economic animals and wild endangered animals, such as "five-combination weak virus vaccine for dogs", "six-combination weak virus vaccine for dogs" and "three-combination vaccine for dogs", thus effectively controlling the occurrence and epidemic of the above-mentioned diseases.
Zhang lianfeng received his doctor of Science degree from Peking Union Medical College in 1992. From 1996 to 2000, he worked as a postdoctoral and research scientist in Ontario Health Center and Baylor College of Medicine in the United States.
