Jean-FranÃ§ois Picimbon QILU University of Technology, China
Dr. Jean-François (Jeff) Picimbon completed his doctorate in Neurosciences-Neurobiology at the University of Provence (Aix Marseille I) in 1995 after graduated studies in Physiology-Neurophysiology at St Jérôme (Aix Marseille III) in France. His original work dealt with pheromone identification, regulation and perception in moths (CNRS-INRA French Ministry of Research MRE#92114-9210 MR/MFP 907). After further behavioral, chemical, molecular and physiological study of insect pheromones in Canada, Japan and USA, he joined the Institute of Physiology in Hohenheim University as Alexander von Humboldt fellow (molecular basis of insect olfaction) before to be appointed “Forskarassistent” (Assistant Professor) at the Department of Ecology from Lund University in Sweden (Ranked first). In 2001, his work on insect chemosensory proteins (CSPs) was honored as “one of the top ten most talented international young scientists” (14th NAITO Conference, Bioactive Natural Products and their Mode of Action, Kanagawa, Japan) for the report of moth and locust chemosensory proteins. In Lund, he led research on termite caste-specific genes (CYP genes), ECB moth male pheromone identification, chemical ecology, genetic, hormonal and endocrine regulation of pheromones, evolution of noctuid pheromone binding protein genes, genetics of insect chemosensing and basics of CSP protein structure/function with a strong connection to CTBA-France (Bordeaux), INRA-France (Angers), School of Functional Genomics and Bioinformatics-Sweden, National Centre for Biomolecular Research at Mazaryk University-Czech Republic (Brno), Department of Biochemistry and Structural Biology (Lund) and various academic exchange/research programs from Belgium, Czech Republic, France, Lithuania and Sweden (Crafoordska Stiftelsen, Lund-Erasmus/Socrates grant programme, Swedish Research Council and Swedish Institute in Stockholm; Principal Investigator for research, principal lecturer and organizer, development of new course and programme between LU and EU). Dr. Picimbon joined China in 2006 in the frame of United Kingdom-China Laboratory of Insect Biology (Nanyang, Henan Province). Following award of Taishan Scholar and Outstanding Scientist from Abroad (2009), he is now Distinguished Professor at the School of Bioengineering at QILU University of Technology (QLUT) and Director of the Institute of Agricultural Microbiology in Jinan (Shandong Province, P.R. China). With Prof. Dr. Shousong Yue (SAAS), he aims at the development of new bio-natural microbial medicine for human health and other natural bio-potion for intensive animal farming or industrial livestock production (cure of piglet diarrhea). In addition of a strength for France-China cooperation, he also helps internationalization and English Development for Higher Education in China through teaching “Advanced Scientific English-Science” and “Frontiers of Science”: Evolution & Ecology, Animal Interactions, Pheromones, Neurobiology of Olfaction and Taste, at academic, university, college, junior secondary middle school and public audience. Dr. Picimbon (Jie Fu) serves as Associate Editor of Gene, Agri-Gene, International Journal of Bioorganic Chemistry and Molecular Biology, Journal of Clinical & Experimental Pathology, SOJ Microbiology and Infectious Diseases, Journal of Clinical Pathology & Laboratory Medicine, International Journal of Proteomics & Genomics and also he is the Editor of "Olfactory Concepts of Insect Olfaction-Alternative to Insecticide" (Springer Nature). He is the Editor-in-Chief of Gene & Translational Bioinformatics (Smart Science & Technology, Houston, USA).
He is matter of several biographical records including Prabook and “Who is Who in Science and Bioengineering” (insect pheromones and chemosensory proteins). He is also Publons Peer Review Award (top 1% of referees, USA) and Insect Science Most Cited Paper Award of 2017. Besides science, he is a member of dozen international societies and governmental institutions, before all France’s permanent representative to Shandong Province as ilot.SD@pekin-phedre.org in North-East Peninsula, North Yellow Sea, P. R. China.
