Biography

In 2010, Dr. Zhang received his bachelor’s degree in pharmacy from Nankai University in China. Then he went to the United States and joined the laboratory of Prof. Karen Wooley at Texas A&M University in the same year.  His graduate research focused on the design and development of polymeric nanoparticles constructed from amphiphilic block copolymers, especially polyphosphoester-based degradable polymers, for targeted delivery of therapeutic agents. After obtaining his Ph.D. degree in chemistry in 2015, Dr. Zhang joined NIH/NIBIB, and has since been a member of the Laboratory of Molecular Imaging and Nanomedicine (LOMIN). His current research focuses on the development of functional smart nanomaterials for therapeutics delivery.
