Department / University Information


Dr. Zhu obtained his Bachelor of Science in Pharmacology from Peking University in China. He did his Ph.D. in Pharmacology with Drs. Heng Zhu and Diane Hayward at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. Then he completed his postdoctoral fellowship with Dr. Stephen Elledge at Brigham and Women’s Hospital of Harvard Medical School. Dr. Zhu joined the University of Rochester Medical Center (URMC) as an Assistant Professor of Microbiology and Immunology (primary) and Biochemistry and Biophysics (secondary).

Research Interest

Dr. Zhu’s lab studies the host-virus interactions, particularly for HIV and herpesviruses, by using recently developed, multidisciplinary systematic approaches, and work at the interface of virology, immunology, proteomics, and functional genomics. The goal is to construct a global landscape of gene network modulating viral infection by integrating multiple systematic approaches and further study key genes that play a role in viral replication or host antiviral defense using cell and/or animal models and multiple skills including biochemistry and biophysics.
