Associate Professor of Biochemical Engineering
Dr. ZHANG Chong received his B.Sc. and Ph.D. in chemical engineering at Department of Chemical Engineering, Tsinghua University in 2002 and 2008, respectively. In 2011, he was promoted as an Associate Professor at the Dept. of Chemical Engineering, Tsinghua University. His research interests are synthetic microbial cell factories. By using emerging technologies in the fields of synthetic biology, informatics biology and system biology, he aims at (1) inventing novel biological parts (biosensors, dynamic control regulators, microbial evolution devices etc.); (2) constructing synthetic pathways in microbial cell factories; and (3) application of above parts and pathways in developing novel routs for the production of bio-based chemicals, bio-energy, and natural products.
