Dr. Min Zhuang graduated from Nanjing University in 2003. She completed the graduate training at St Jude Children’s Research Hospital and obtained her Ph.D. degree from The University of Tennessee Health Science Center in 2009. She continued her postdoctoral training in the Department of Pharmaceutical Chemistry at University of California San Francisco. In 2014, she joined ShanghaiTech University as a tenure-track assistant professor, PI in the School of Life Sciences and Technology. Dr. Zhuang’s group utilizes a series of research methods including biochemistry, cell biology, proteomics and structural biology to develop new methods to study protein interaction and extend the methods to study protein ubiquitin modification. They are using a multi-disciplinary approach to study membrane-based ubiquitin ligases and their role in regulating organelle function.
