Kun Zhang's Biography

Kun Zhang, Associate Professor, University of California San Diego

Dr. Kun Zhang is an Associate Professor of Bioengineering at the University of California at San Diego. After obtaining his Ph.D. in Human and Molecular Genetics from the University of Texas at Houston/MD Anderson Cancer Center, he received his post-doctoral training with George Church at Harvard Medical School. He joined the faculty of UCSD Department of Bioengineering in 2007. His current group is developing genome technologies based on single-molecule sequencing, single-cell manipulation/amplification, and chip-based synthesis and manipulation of complex DNA libraries. They are applying these novel technologies to stem cell research and personalized medicine. Dr. Zhang is also leading one of the three single cell genomics centers on the mapping of human brain gene activities under the NIH Roadmap program.

Individual cells in a population are often somewhat different from one to another. Measurements made on bulk cell populations do not capture the inherent heterogeneity of the cell population, and important insights can be missed. In this talk I will discuss some technical challenges in analyzing individual cells in adult human brain, and present a number of recent progresses we made in acquiring genome and transcriptome information from single cortical neurons from post-mortem brain specimens.
