Guoping Zhao is a molecular microbiologist and currently the Professor and Chairman of the Advisory Committee of CAS- Key Laboratory of Synthetic Biology of Shanghai Institute of Plant Physiology and Ecology (SIPPE), Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS), after serving as its founding director for the term of 2008–2016. He has been the Chief Scientist of Bio-Med Big Data Center at the Shanghai Institute of Nutrition and Health (SINH), CAS since 2016, and Director of the Department of Microbiology and Microbial Engineering at the School of Life Sciences, Fudan University since 2004.

Guoping ZHAO has been working on microbial physiology and metabolic regulation  since  he  received  his  B.S.  degree of Biology from Fudan University in 1982, followed by his postgraduate studies in the PUB Program of Purdue University, Indiana, USA and receiving the Ph.D degree in 1990. He returned to China in 1992 as the founding production manager of Shanghai Promega Biological Products, Ltd, a subsidiary joint venture of Shanghai Research Center of Biotechnology (SRCB), CAS. He started working at the Shanghai Institute of Plant Physiology (SIPP, currently SIPPE), CAS in late 1994 as the Professor and Director of the microbiology laboratory. He served as the Director of SRCB from 1997 to 1999 and the Vice- President of Shanghai Institutes for Biological Sciences from 1999 to 2001, where he organized and participated the Human Genome Project of CAS (1998–2001). He worked as the Exec- utive Director of the Chinese National Human Genome Center at Shanghai during 2002–2016 and the Director of the National Engineering Center for BioChip at Shanghai during 2002–2015. Along with his scientific duties in program/project organization and institutional administration, he focused his research activi- ties on genomics and systems biology, largely for microorgan- isms, of which, he devoted and contributed to a few important projects including the molecular evolution study of SARS-CoV during the 2003–2005 SARS epidemic.

Guoping Zhao was elected to the CAS in 2005 and as the President of the Chinese Society for Microbiology for the term of 2006–2011. He was elected to the Third World  Academy   of Sciences in 2011. He was awarded a Doctor of Agriculture honoris causa, at Purdue University of the USA in 2014.
