Dr Jinwei Zhang is a Principal Investigator at the University of Exeter Medical School, UK. His laboratory studies ion channels, transporters, and signalling pathways that associated with human diseases, for examples, stroke that regulated by WNK-SPAK/OSR1-KCC2/NKCC1, hypertension that regulated by WNK-SPAK/OSR1-NCC, and concern with elucidating and targeting ion transporters, kinases, protein-protein interactions using genetic mouse models, small molecules and CRISPR/Cas9 knock-in and knock-out technologies to aid discovery and validation of new potential drug targets. He is internationally recognised for his expertise in cellular chloride homeostasis and cell volume regulation and drug discovery. He has published more than 60 articles in journals including Nature Medicine, Cell Metabolism, Neuron, Nature Communications, EMBO molecular medicine, Science Signalling, Human Molecular Genetics etc. and has achieved more than 2080 citations, H-index=23, i10-index=38.
