Lan-Chang Liang is a Distinguished Professor of Chemistry at National Sun Yat-sen University, a joint Professor of Medicinal and Applied Chemistry at Kaohsiung Medical University, and a joint Professor of Pharmacy at Kaohsiung Medical University, Taiwan. He undertook his PhD studies at Massachusetts Institute of Technology with Professor Richard R. Schrock (2005 Nobel Laureate) on early transition metal chemistry of complexes containing amido chelates. After a postdoctoral stay with Professor T. Daniel P. Stack at Stanford University studying functional molecular models of copper oxygenases, he began his independent career at NSYSU where his research program focuses on the development and application of new mismatched coordination compounds, particularly those competent in inert chemical bond activation and subsequent catalytic functionalization. His work has been recognized by Thieme Chemistry Journals Award, one of top international inorganic chemists under 40 years of age (Inorganica Chimica Acta), and Chemical Society of Japan with Distinguished Lectureship Award.
