Dr. Ma Yaping, Vice President of Shenzhen Hanyu Pharmaceutical Co., Ltd.visited Department of Biology of SUSTC for academic exchanges

On October 24, 2016, Dr. Ma Yaping, Vice President of Shenzhen Hanyu Pharmaceutical Co., Ltd. visited SUSTC for academic exchanges upon the invitation of Professor Xiao Guozhi of our Department of Biology, and carried out an academic lecture entitledResearch and Development of Peptide Drugs. Dr. Ma is the technology leader of the research and development of peptide drugs as well as director and organizer of the key technology. Dr. Ma has won the China Patent Excellence Award, the Guangdong Provincial Science and Technology Award, and is now the standing vice president of Shenzhen Municipal Science and Technology Association as well as a member of Shenzhen Youth Federation.

Dr. Ma first introduced the current classification of drugs on the market and pointed out the advantages of peptide drugs compared to small molecule drugs and protein drugs. Then Dr. Ma explained the advantages and characteristics of peptide drugs with specific examples so that our students better understood the wide range of peptide drugs. At the same time, Dr. Ma described different ways of synthesis of peptide drugs and made a comparison between them.

Finally, Dr. Ma talked about the impurity control during the chemical synthesis of the peptides from the industrial perspective, and stressed that the inspection, control and elimination of impurities is a very important aspect for pharmaceuticals. Dr. Ma highlighted the importance of drug quality control with several well-known cases and introduced the concept of QbD (Quality by Design) and a series of ways to reduce and eliminate impurities.

Our teachers and classmates listened attentively to the lecture and had heated discussions on the topic. We believe that the visit by Dr. Ma not only broadened our research view, but also laid a good foundation for our cooperation and in-depth exchanges in future.
