Chi Zhang

Assistant Professor of Medical & Molecular Genetics


Dr. Chi Zhang focuses on computational modeling of cancer micro-environment including the level of hypoxia, oxidative stress, acidity and dysregulation of extracellular matrix as well as altered immune responses in cancer tissue by using large scale omics data. Dr. Chi Zhang is also interested in developing novel computation methods to integrate multiple tissue level and single cell omics data types to understand the mechanism of cancer initiation, progression, metastasis and cancer tumor tissue’s resistance to certain therapies. In addition, his research application also includes inference of intra-tumor heterogeneity and reprogrammed metabolism, and prediction of gain or loss of functions led by a certain mutation or collective effect of multiple mutations.
