Research in the Zhang lab centers on the development and application of chemical modulators of signaling proteins, in particular those involved in cancer and autoimmunity. The goal is to achieve a better understanding of normal and aberrant signaling and accelerate the development of novel therapeutics for these human diseases. A combination of structural bioinformatics, molecular design and protein engineering will be employed in our study.
Postdoctoral Position opening: we are seeking self-motivated individuals with PhD in Chemistry, Biochemistry or Cell Biology to join the lab. http://chem.usc.edu/faculty/Zhang.html
