Research Focus


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.
