Cheng-Zhong Zhang obtained a Ph.D. in Chemical Engineering with a minor in Physics from Caltech. He received postdoctoral training in single-molecule biophysics in Timothy Springer’s laboratory at Harvard Medical School and subsequently worked on single-cell genomics and cancer biology in Matthew Meyerson’s laboratory at the Broad Institute of Harvard and MIT and at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. He combines single-cell genomic analysis and cell biology to study genome evolution and phenotypic variation. Currently, he focuses on the mechanisms and the transcriptional consequences of chromosomal abnormalities, such as rearrangement and aneuploidy, and how such events may promote tumor development.
