Yong Zeng's Biography

Yong Zeng, Associate Professor

Dr. Zeng is an associate professor of chemistry and affiliate faculty of Biomedical Engineering at the University of Florida, and a member of UF Health Cancer Center. He obtained his PhD in Chemistry from University of Alberta, Canada and completed the postdoc training at University of California, Berkeley. Dr. Zeng’s research draws on chemistry, nanomaterials, bioengineering, and medicine to develop innovative micro and nanoscale tools to advance precision medicine of cancer. His technology innovations span from biomolecular assays to micro/nano systems for sensitive measurements of liquid biopsies and molecular biomarkers. His group is also devoted to translational research to bring the technological innovations to clinical sciences, closely collaborating with biologists and clinicians. Dr. Zeng is internationally recognized for his pioneering research in developing microfluidic technologies for isolation and analysis of tumor-derived extracellular vesicles (EVs) for cancer diagnostics and therapeutics. His research programs have been continuously funded by NIH and other funding agencies and led to many highly visible publications on top-tier journals, including Nat. Biomed. Eng. and Sci. Transl. Med., which were featured in public media outlets such as the NIH Director’s Blog and the JAMA Network.
