About us

We are proud to announce that we will host the 21st International Symposium on Field- and Flow-Based Separations at UC Riverside. It is an international biannual meeting highlighting the new developments and applications in all forms of Field-Flow Fractionation (FFF) and the related field- and flow separation techniques. Please refer to the meeting website for more information: https://fffseparation.net/fff2022/

The Zhong group has two main research programs: bio-sensing and bio-separation.

The bio-sensing program aim to improve the detectability of biomarkers from three aspects:(1) developing novel signaling strategies;(2) integrating sample preparation and detection on microchips; and (3) searching for the most effective affinity probes.

The bio-separation program focuses on applying separation techniques to study protein-protein and protein-nanoparticle interactions.

We are recruiting talented graduate students.For any details, please contact Dr. Zhong.
