Qiang Zhou , Ph. D



Dr. Zhou received his bachelor degree from University of Science  & Technology of China in 1986 and went to University of California at Los  Angeles to pursue graduate study and earned his Ph.D. in Molecular Biology from  UCLA at 1992.Supported by a  postdoctoral fellowship from the Jane Coffin Childs Memorial Fund for Medical  Research, he received postdoctoral training from 1993 to 1996 in Dr. Phillip  Sharp’s laboratory at MIT. In 1997, he joined the Department of Molecular and  Cell Biology at UC Berkeley, where currently he is a full professor, and a  charter member of the NIH AIDS Molecular and Cellular Biology (AMCB) Study  Section, the chair of the Tang Distinguished Scholarship Program at UC Berkeley  and a member on the editorial board of the Bioscience Journal, Scientific  consultant to Novartis Institute for Biomedical Research.In 2006, he was recruited to Xiamen  University , and awarded as “Minjiang Scholar Lecture Professor” , In 2010, he  was elected to the “National Thousand Talents Program”. Dr. Zhou has published  more than 50 papers in prestigious journals such  as Science, Nature ,Genes&Development , Molecular Cell, PNAS, and holds two  U.S. patents.

Research  interests

We interests in control of gene transcription elongation and  diseases, and mainly focus on the mechanism of transcriptional elongation  regulation of eukaryotes and AIDS and drug development.
