Resumes of professors:

Songxue WANG (male, Director, Ph.D., associate professor)
Songxue WANG is the director of this group, and deputy director of department of grain and oil safety, as well as the technical expert of Chinese Cereals and Oils Association. He is also member of the Chinese delegation of Annual meeting of codex committee on contaminants in foods (CCCF, 2012) and codex committee on pesticide residues (CCPR, 2010-2012). He graduated from the Research Center of Eco-Environmental Sciences of Chinese Academy of Science in 2004. From that year, he worked in the Academy of State Administration of Grain (ASAG), and has been engaged in the detection, prevention, control and risk analysis of food contaminants like mycotoxin in cereals and oils. He hosted some national projects such as the 863 project from Ministry of Science and technology, National Natural Science Foundation of China, projects from Ministry of Science and technology for public welfare, national and industrial standards. He has published more than 20 papers in core periodicals at home and abroad in recent years, has established three national standards, and has been awarded with the first prize of Science and Technology Award from Chinese Cereals and Oils Association and so on.
 
 
Xicheng Hao (male, associate professor)
Xicheng Hao devotes himself mainly in researches on analysis of grain and oil. He took part in establishing national standards for more than 10 items; developed grain and oil analysis standard substances for cereals and oils for more than 20 items; one of which is for primary national standard substance, 14 of which are for national secondary standard substance, the promising result of research have been awarded with second class Prize and third class Prize by the Chinese Cereals and Oils AAssociation; he also has published more than 30 papers. He is now committee member of the 1st Food Safety National Standard Appraisal Committee.
