Biography
Li Zhang completed her PhD from UCLA and postdoctoral studies from MIT department of Biology. She is the Cecil H. and Ida Green Distinguished Chair in Systems Biology Science at the University of Texas at Dallas. Professor Zhang’s laboratory has worked on studying heme signaling and function for 20+ years. She has published many original research articles and a book entitled “Heme Biology: The Secret Life of Heme in Regulating Diverse Biological Processes” on this subject. Professor Zhang’s laboratory has also made important contributions in understanding the roles of molecular chaperones in cellular signaling, molecular mechanisms of oxygen signaling, and the actions of neurotoxicants. Recently, Professor Zhang’s lab focuses on investigating heme function in lung cancer. She and colleagues have provided a unifying view of cancer bioenergetics in a review article entitled “A Holistic View of Cancer Bioenergetics: Mitochondrial Function and Respiration Play Fundamental Roles in the Development and Progression of Diverse Tumors,” published in the journal “Clinical and Translational Medicine.”
