Pengchao Zhang's Biography

Pengchao Zhang, Research Fellow, Houston Methodist Research Institute

Pengchao Zhang is currently a postdoctoral fellow in Prof. Lidong Qin’s group at Houston Methodist Research Institute (HMRI). He received his B.S. in materials science (2010) from Wuhan University of Technology (WHUT), China. In 2010, he joined Prof. Lei Jiang’s group and received his Ph.D. degree in Physical Chemistry from Institute of Chemistry, Chinese Academy of Sciences (ICCAS) (2016). His current research interests focus on the development of novel microfluidic devices for exploring the intercellular communication of genetic materials via cell protrusions in a high-throughput manner.

Cellular and molecular assays, especially in the study of phenotype-genotype correlations at the single-cell level, are critical for the understanding of intratumor heterogeneity and identification of cancer phenotype-related genes, new cell subsets, and assist in cancer prevention, diagnosis, and therapy. Traditional technologies for single-cell manipulation and analysis are plagued by operational complexity, limited efficiency, and low-throughout. Integrated microfluidics devices have become a robust technique for single-cell manipulation. By the rational design of microfluidics platforms, we can achieve rapid and high-throughput cellular and molecular assays, including (1) single cell based analysis such as Block-Cell-Printing for live single-cell printing, Single-Cell Pipette for convenient single-cell isolation, and yeast chip for high-throughput analysis of yeast replicative aging, (2) double cells based assay such as vertical cell pairing for high-resolution imaging of the immunological synapse, and (3) CRISPR/Cas9 based genome editing for hard-to-transfect cells.
