Jia Zhou completed his Ph.D. in Microbiology and Molecular Genetics, University of Vermont, Burlington, VT, 2008-2015. Jia Zhou is Postdoctoral Research Fellow, 2015 – present, atLaboratories of Dr. Alan D’Andrea and Dr. Timur Yusufzai Dana Farber Cancer Institute and Harvard Medical School, Boston, MA. He worked as Research Associate in 2015 at Laboratory of Dr. Susan S. Wallace, University of Vermont, Burlington, VT. He published more than twelve Research, Review papers in International peer reviewed journals. He was awarded with Student and New Investigator Travel Award, 2013, Environmental Mutagenesis and Genomics Society (EMGS). He is member of American Association for the Advancement of Science, 2013-present and also member of American Society for Biological Chemistry and Molecular Biology, 2016-present. He worked as Graduate Teaching Assistant in Molecular Cloning Lab, University of Vermont, 2011. He has been serving as reviewer of different International Journals with repute. Jia Zhou is interested in DNA repair in general. When in graduate school at UVM,and worked on base excision repair (BER) and studied how BER function in G-quadruplex DNA structures and telomere sequence context. I studied the cellular functions of the human NEIL3 DNA glycosylase in telomeres and also in the development of auto-antibodies and immunodeficiency. Hejoined Dana-Farber after graduation, and switched my focus on mechanisms of double strand break repair and how chromatin remodelers participate in this vital pathway.
