Mao Feng  received his Ph.D. from Chinese Academy of Agricultural Sciences (CAAS) in 2010. He is an Associate Professor in the Institute of Apicultural Research, CAAS, and mainly focusing on the post-translational modification of royal jelly, especially on the functional analysis of glycosylation modification of Major Royal Jelly Proteins. Dr. Feng has published 7 papers as the first or corresponding author in high-rank international journals with the total impact factor>30. He was honored the second price of “Scientific and Technological Achievements” (as the second completed) by Beijing Committee of Science and Technology in 2013.
