Biography

Yue Zhang is now an instructor in Department of Radiation Oncology, Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center (BIDMC) /Harvard Medical School. He completed his PhD program in Cellular and Developmental biology in 2006 at University of Fribourg, Switzerland, and identified the differentially expressed downstream targets of human nucleosome remodelling Mi-2 orthologue LET-418 and explored the influence of TOR kinase on lifespan in C. elegans using genetics. Then he carried out his postdoctoral training at Institute of Ageing and Pittsburgh Institute of neurodegenerative diseases, University of Pittsburgh. In 2008, he moved to Dept of Radiation Oncology/BIDMC first as research fellow and was promoted to current position in August, 2010. He have authored and coauthored 15 publications in journals, such as Nature, Developmental biology, BMC developmental biology, PLOS Genetics, PLOS one, J. Vis Exp, Cancer informatics, Gene regulation and Systems biology. He served as a reviewer in some journals, including Cellular and Molecular Life Science, Transgenic Research, Knowledge-based Systems, and the La-Press journals.

Research Interest

Yue Zhang research interests include Genetics and Epigenetics, Systems biology, SLAC ( Stem cell biology,longevity, Ageing  and cancer biology) with a focus on chromatin remodelers w/o the stressors, particularly  radiation, heat shock, and nutrient deprivation by using  both C.elegans model organisms and mammalian systems.
