Eavesdropping on Tumors with Engineered Exosome Biochips

Yong Zeng, PhD, Department of Chemistry, University of Kansas

Host: Dr. Huiwang Ai

Dr. Zeng currently is an Associate Professor at the University of Kansas in the Department of Chemistry, the Bioengineering Graduate Program, and KU Cancer Center.  He received his Ph.D. in Chemistry from the University of Alberta, Canada with Jed Harrison in 2007.  His postdoctoral research with Richard Mathies at the University of California, Berkeley was focused on single cell analysis of early-stage carcinogenic mutations in blood cancer.  Dr. Zeng joined KU as assistant professor of chemistry in 2012.  Working at the interface of chemistry and biology, a primary aim of his research is to develop new enabling tools for liquid biopsy-based cancer diagnosis and precision medicine.  Dr. Zeng is also interested in translational research to move technology innovations from laboratory benchtop into clinical practices to facilitate the advance of human health.  He received the J.R. & Inez Jay Award in 2014, and was named as prestigious Docking Family Faculty Scholar in 2017.  His research has been supported by a number of grants from National Institute of Health (NIH) and other funding agencies.
