    Dr. Zhang received his B.S. in Biological Sciences from Shandong University in 2003 and his M.S. in Biophysics from University of Guelph in 2006. He earned his Ph.D. in Biochemistry with Professor Vern L. Schramm at Albert Einstein College of Medicine in 2011. His doctoral research was focused on the enzymatic transition state and catalytic mechanism for rational design of potent enzyme inhibitors as antimalarial and anticancer drugs. Dr. Zhang received postdoctoral training with Professor Peter G. Schultz at the Scripps Research Institute and California Institute for Biomedical Research (Calibr) from 2011 to 2014. His postdoctoral work established a versatile approach to the generation of novel antibody chimeras with excellent physical, biological, and pharmacological properties for drug development. Dr. Zhang joined the faculty in the Department of Pharmacology and Pharmaceutical Sciences at USC School of Pharmacy as an Assistant Professor in December 2014.

    Altmetrics Details PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication. Some publications (especially newer ones and publications not in PubMed) might not yet be assigned Field or Translation tags.) Click a Field or Translation tag to filter the publications.
