Postdoctoral Research Fellow

Dr. Lei Zhang is working on investigating several longevity factors and pro-aging signaling pathways using cell culture and mouse models, as well as developing potential senotherapeutics to extend healthy lifespan. Outside the lab, he enjoys reading, cooking, fishing, and exploring the beauty of nature with his cat.
