Special Seminar by Dr. Bin Zhou
Prof. Zhou is a world-class leading researcher in cardiovascular development. He received his Ph.D. in cardiovascular pathology from University of Toronto, Canada, and trained as a post-doctoral Fellow at University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine, Philadelphia. Currently, he is Professor of Genetics, Pediatrics (Pediatric Genetics), and Medicine (Cardiology) at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine, NY.
His studies focus on mechanisms that control heart development and aim to dissect the pathogenesis of congenital heart disease. Prof. Zhou’s lab has thorough expertise in advanced single cell technologies and CRISPR gene editing.
