The Rockefeller University,USA.


Supported by the Darwin Trust, Dr. Zhang received his PhD from the University of Edinburgh in Molecular and Cellular biology in 2014. During the period of his study, Dr. Zhang revealed the mechanisms associated with histone methyltransferases G9a and GLP in the maintenance of genomic imprinting in mammalian embryonic stem (ES) cells.

Research Interest

Currently, being as a postdoctoral researcher, Dr. Zhang is trying to decipher the role of BET proteins in mammalian ES cells and the potential molecular basis that involved in drug resistance of tumor (stem) cells at the Rockefeller University.
