Dr. Zhang’s bioanalytical research exploits practical and efficient high-throughput technologies to analyze complex mixtures derived from living systems. Dr. Zhang’s bioinformatics research develops algorithms for molecular identification, quantification, molecular network elucidation, and knowledge assembly. Dr. Zhang’s Center has built a comprehensive infrastructure for metabolomics, lipidomics, and epitranscriptomics. A suite of sample processing methods has been developed and refined into standard protocols for various biomedical specimens, including biofluids (plasma, urine, CSF, BALF, lymph), tissues (heart, brain, liver, lung, kidney, muscle), feces, hair, and cell extracts.
