He serves as a clinical genomicist in the cytogenetics laboratory at Strong Memorial Hospital. He earned his PhD in Molecular Genetics and Genomics and obtained his Clinical Genomics fellowship at Washington University in Saint Louis. He is board certified in Clinical Cytogenetics and board eligible in Clinical Molecular Genetics by the American Board of Medical Genetics and Genomics. Prior to his doctoral studies, he earned his BS in Biology from Sichuan University in China and MS in Biology from Truman State University. He also completed his post-doctoral training at Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory. Dr. Zhang' clinical responsibilities include the genetic diagnostic evaluation of blood, bone marrow, lymph nodes, amniotic fluid, chorionic villus, product of conception, and tissues for other malignancies. This includes interpretation of molecular genetics and cytogenetics data from sequencing, karyotyping, FISH and microarray analysis.ResearchHis graduate study focused on human genetics and mouse modeling of cohesinopathies, and his postdoctoral work on studying function, regulation, and evolution of long (MALAT1 and NEAT1) and small (piRNAs) non-coding RNAs (ncRNAs). He maintains active research interests in chromosome biology and centromere biology. In particular, his research program at University of Rochester focuses on studying the formation, plasticity, and epigenetic inheritance of neocentromere, and its potential clinical applications in gene therapy and synthetic biology.
