Welcome to the Zhang Lab

The Zhang laboratory is interested in characterizing how temporal, spatial, and dose perturbation of oncogenes and tumor suppressor genes predispose to leukemia development and how could we use the leukemia-specific vulnerabilities, including the haploinsufficient phenotype observed in patients with chromosome and copy number deletions to develop synthetic lethal therapeutics.


The Zhang Lab is supported by the following institutions:

National Cancer Institute    

Cancer Early Detection Advanced Research Center (CEDAR) Pilot Award             
Medical Research Foundation of Oregon 
The Division of Oncological Science at OHSU

Translational Oncology Program Pilot Award
