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.
