Biography

Dr. Hui Zhang is an Assistant Professor of Pathology at the Johns Hopkins University.  Her research focus is in the development of high-throughput technologies to isolate and identify protein modifications by developing affinity reagents and chemical immobilizations to target protein glycosylation, phosphorylation, and acetylation. To analyze these protein modifications, she is developing technologies for high-throughput quantitative mass spectrometric analyses. She is also applying these technologies to understand the mechanism of protein modifications on disease development and determine protein modifications associated with disease progression for early detection and monitoring therapeutics. Dr. Zhang earned her PhD in biochemistry and molecular biophysics from the University of Pennsylvania, and joined New England Biolabs and Cell Signaling Technology to develop affinity reagents and proteomic methods. Later, she developed proteomic technology to study protein glycosylation when she worked with Dr. Ruedi Aebersold at the Institute for Systems Biology.
