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.

Please join us to congratulate Dr. Luis Jimenez for getting his Ph.D. this Spring. Luis is the first in his family to attend college. After getting his B.S., he continued to pursue a doctor's degree in the Biomedical Graduation Program of UCR. He has been a big inspiration for his many underrepresented students, including his sisters. He had also been such a great member in the group, handling many lab management stuff. While he is moving on with his exploratory journey with a Ph.D., we will all miss him very much!

We were so proud that, Ms. Sabrina Sedano, our undergraduate research assistant, was the student speaker at the CNAS graduation ceremony. Such an honor is only given to students who not only have high GPAs, but also have done much more beyond the curriculum, like serving the community and doing excellent research. What a marvelous way to graduate, Sabrina! Congratulations!
