to do scientific research must be adventurous
looking at the scenery resume of Zhuang Xiaowei, many people thought Zhuang Xiaowei too smooth, in fact, any success will not look so of course, only Zhuang Xiaowei paid how much hard.
“My secret is to forget the successes and failures of the past, everything from scratch, never give up.” Zhuang Xiaowei just started a PhD, not all the students, the most prominent one, she even once suspected the ability to do experiments. During post-doctoral research, she also encountered a whole year all groping test, what results to draw up the predicament.in the face of time pressures and challenges, the Zhuang Xiaowei always did not give up their own power from redouble our efforts. An assistant professor at Harvard period Zhuang Xiaowei other colleagues tend to select relatively “safe” topics, so as to rapidly results, send the paper. Harvard University, if the papers published by the six-year period did not reach the number of requests, you face the situation of leave. Zhuang Xiaowei spirit of adventure, from the beginning, it was decided to choose the difficult and risky subject. Or her numerous honors, and was promoted to professor at Harvard University when someone asked her, you can choose whether some of the more important issue to do, she said: “I have been looking for important subject, never looking for easy problems to do. “
Zhuang Xiaowei suggested that the domestic education sector, to cultivate students’ creativity, to encourage students to ask questions, no one is stupid, there will always be one hundred questions a smart, smart is perhaps a great scientific discovery. Second, encourage students as early as possible into the laboratory for research, not to score too seriously, to let students have more contact with the cutting-edge science, daring to think and solve problems that have not yet been resolved.
stood on the podium like a changed man
with many Chinese scientists, Zhuang Xiaowei very plain, without any gesture to please people, and has a simple and very focused. A friend described Zhuang Xiaowei: as long as a return to science, she immediately changed the individual, for example, in a speech, not only the wording is accurate and elegant, smooth tone, and very comfortable.president of
former China University of Science and Technology, the principal of the incumbent South University of Technology ZQ, this 87 Junior class girls, still leaves the impression. In October 2003, Zhuang Xiaowei back to his alma mater, the University of Science and Technology of China to do a report, when she has just won a MacArthur Foundation year “genius grant”.
that time, Zhuang Xiaowei his report, called “demonstrate a single RNase molecule folding and a single influenza virus infection process, light the name makes one feel very confused. Zhuang Xiaowei but use their own “story-telling ability, are able to understand and even people outside the discipline. Her language is very humorous, including body language. She described how the influenza virus invade living cells “, she would imitate the virus on the cells, said:” I am here, let me come, “she humorously Rating:” I think the influenza virus is very clever, but the cells are very stupid To know the virus only to enter the cells, while the remaining infection action by the cell itself. “
research methods, experimental principle, fixtures, results, analysis, logic is clear, concise, compact, full of the spirit of science, all the peer praise. Zhuang Xiaowei said, never be discriminated against because they are not Americans and, as long as scientific research well, it must be recognized. However, she said, traditional education in China has its weaknesses, so that the creative thinking of the Chinese people is not active, the Chinese students in this regard should be noted that adjustment. Choice of research topics, selection of impact on society, make the majority of people benefit from the subject to avoid superficial research.

Her election, has broken the record of the youngest of the National Academy of Sciences Chinese Academy of Sciences.
people said Zhuang Xiaowei is a young genius, and she was 15 years old on the university at the age of 25 received a doctorate in physics, 34-year-old Harvard University Adjunct Professor, has a name in its own laboratory ; she entered the National Academy of Sciences last year, the average age of the Fellow of 61.5 years, only just turned 40 years old this year, Zhuang Xiaowei elected.
