Jinming Gao received his B.Sc. degree in Chemistry from Peking University in June 1991. He came to the U.S. and carried out graduate studies at Harvard under George Whitesides. In May 1996, he received a Ph.D. in Organic Chemistry with thesis research focused on rational drug design and protein charge ladders. Following Ph.D., he completed his postdoctoral training in Biomedical Engineering under Robert Langer at MIT.

In August 1998, Dr. Gao joined the faculty of Biomedical Engineering at Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, Ohio. He was promoted to Associate Professor with tenure in Biomedical Engineering and Radiology in April 2004. In July 2005, Dr. Gao moved his lab to Dallas, Texas, where he currently holds a primary appointment as Professor of Oncology and Pharmacology in the Simmons Cancer Center at UT Southwestern and a joint appointment in Chemistry and Bioengineering at UT Dallas.

Using a highly-interdisciplinary approach, Dr. Gao's lab is focusing on development of non-linear nanomedicine platforms for image-guided tumor resection, cancer drug delivery and immunotherapy.
