Ke Zhang was born in China in 1982 and moved to the US in 2005, after graduating from Nanjing University of Technology with a B.S. degree in Applied Chemistry. He conducted his graduate studies with Professor Karen L. Wooley, and received his Ph.D. from Washington University in St. Louis in... read more2009 for the development of polymeric nanoparticles for gene regulation. Then, he worked as a postdoctoral fellow in the laboratory of Professor Chad A. Mirkin at Northwestern University until 2012, focusing on core-less spherical nucleic acids. Zhang began his independent academic career at Northeastern University in Boston, MA, in 2012. His research interests involve polymer chemistry, molecular self-assembly, and bionanotechnology. His laboratory utilizes a range of organic reactions, colloidal syntheses, and bioconjugation techniques to access nanoscopic synthetic targets for various applications including biological detection and therapeutics.
