  • Jiang Mianheng is the son of Jiang Zemin, former General Secretary of the Communist Party of China and President of the People's Republic of China. His mother is Wang Yeping. Jiang is one of the co-founders of Grace Semiconductor Manufacturing Corporation, located in Shanghai. He holds a PhD in Electrical Engineering from Drexel University with thesis titled Point contact tunneling study of the high transition temperature superconductor Bi₂Sr₂CaCu₂O₈ in 1991, where his father went for a visit in 1997. Jiang also served as one of the head researchers for the Chinese space program. In 2007, he failed to win nomination as a delegate to the 17th Party Congress. Reuters indicated that this was a sign that the Shanghai Clique under his father's auspices had lost its power. He served as one of the Vice Presidents in the Chinese Academy of Sciences up until November 2011. At that point, Jiang Mianheng was reportedly stripped of his post and accused of bribery and embezzlement in a stock bidding scandal and the misallocation of public funds. He was not expelled from the CAS however, but became president of the Academy's Shanghai branch.
