Assistant Professor Department of Biology
Dr. Hanbing Zhong got his PhD degree from Peking University in 2007, and worked for UCLA as postdoctor from 2007 to 20018. From 2008 to 2015, Dr. Zhong worked for Peking University as Associate Professor. In 2013, Dr. Zhong joined SUSTech. The lab of Dr. Zhong uses zebrafish as model organism to investigate endodermal organogenesis, hematopoiesis, drug discovery and neurodegenerative diseases modeling.

We use zebrafish to investigate the molecular mechanisms by which the biological processes are controlled in embryogenesis and model diseases. Currently, we are particularly interested in three areas, endoderm organ development, hematopoiesis, and Parkinson’s disease model.
