Jianhua Zhao, Ph.D.

Jianhua Zhao's Bio

Dr. Zhao joins us from University of California San Francisco, where he recently completed his Postdoctoral Training.  His lab will focus on understanding how proteins function under different physiological and disease states from a structural biology perspective. Specifically, Dr. Zhao brings significant expertise in visualizing proteins at high resolution using cryogenic electron microscopy (cryo-EM). Dr. Zhao received his Bachelor’s and Ph.D. in Medical Biophysics from the University of Toronto, Canada, where he completed 5 years of graduate training investigating rotary ATPases. He then went on and completed 5 years of postdoctoral training at UCSF studying Transient Receptor Potential ion channels.
