We are dedicated to developing better bioengineered tools to address unmet biomedical needs and biological questions. Through working at the interface of material sciences, biomedical engineering, biology and medicine, our interdisciplinary and collaborative team aims to develop next generation stem cell-based therapeutics and miniaturized diagnostics (Research). We are also fully committed to the professional development of the personnel in the laboratory and do everything we can to ensure successful career paths (Education). If you are interested in joining the team, collaborating, donating, or are interested in what our research expertise can do for you, please contact Dr. Weian Zhao (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Zhao lab proudly launched Velox Biosystems for developing rapid and sensitive diagnostic tools and is actively seeking partners. Please contact Dr. Weian Zhao (email@example.com).
Multiple positions available for highly motivated Postdocs, Graduate Students, Undergraduate students and Administrative Staffs who want to join an interdisciplinary and collaborative team to address unmet challenges in medicine. The applicants who have a background/interest in immunology, stem cell and cancer biology, in vitro selection and evolution, bioengineering and technology translation, and clinical oncology are particularly encouraged to apply.
