Prof. Xianquan Zhan received his M.D. and Ph.D. training in preventive medicine at West China University of Medical Sciences during 1989-1999. He received his post-doctoral training in oncology and cancer proteomics at Central South University and University of Tennessee Health Science Center (UTHSC). He worked at UTHSC and Cleveland Clinic in USA during 2001-2012, and achieved the rank of Associate Professor at UTHSC. In 2012, he moved to Central South University and Shandong First Medical University as a Professor, and Advisors of MS/PhD graduate students and postdoctoral fellows. He is also the Fellow of Royal Society of Medicine, Fellow of EPMA, European EPMA National Representative, Full member of ASCO, AAAS member, Editor-In-Chief of IJCDT, Associate Editors of EPMA Journal and BMC Genomics, and Guest Editors of Frontiers in Endocrinology and Mass Spectrometry Reviews. He has published 166 articles, 30 book chapters, and 2 US patents in the field of clinical proteomics and biomarkers. He edited 6 academic books: 'Proteoforms – Concept and Applications in Medical Sciences”, 'Molecular Network Study of Pituitary Adenomas”, 'Ubiquitin-Proteasome Pathway”, 'Metabolomics - Methodology and Applications in Medical Sciences and Life Sciences”, 'Cell Culture - Advanced Technology and Applications in Medical and Life Sciences”, and 'Modifications of Biomolecules”. As the Guest editor, He edited 15 special issues in SCI journals such as Mass Spectrometry Reviews (IF=10.946), Frontiers in Endocrinology (IF=6.055), EPMA Journal (IF=8.836), Oxidative Medicine and Cellular Longevity (IF=7.310). His main research interest focuses on the studies of cancer proteomics and proteoforms, multiomics and biomarkers, and the use of modern omics techniques and systems biology for predictive, preventive and personalized medicine (PPPM) and precision medicine (PM) in cancer.

Cell culture is cell cloning technology that simulates in vivo environment conditions such as asepsis, appropriate temperature, and pH as well as certain nutritional conditions to enable cells to survive, grow, reproduce, and maintain their structure and function. Cell culture can be used to grow human, animal, plant, and microbial cells. Each type of cell culture has its own characteristics and essential conditions. This book focuses on the advanced technology and applications of cell culture in the research and practice of medical and life sciences. Chapters address such topics as primary cancer cell cultures, 2D and 3D cell cultures, stem cells, nanotechnology, and more.
