|Yi Zhang is current an Assistant Professor at the School of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering at Nanyang Technological University. He received his B.Eng degree in Bioengineering (1st Class Honor) from Nanyang Technological University in 2007 and his Ph.D. degree in Biomedical Engineering from Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine in 2013. After his graduation, he joined the Institute of Bioengineering and Nanotechnology (IBN), A*STAR, as Postdoctoral Fellow and was appointed as Research Scientist in 2015.|
|Yi Zhang's research goal is to advance biomedical research at the interface of engineering and clinical investigation to address the diagnostic needs in modern medicine practice. His current research will focus on developing and validating novel diagnostic assays and platforms using advanced micro/nanotechnologies. In particular, his research aims to expand his line of inquiry on two fronts: 1) develop novel diagnostic assays and platforms, bridge the gaps between clinical innovations and technological advances, and translate discoveries to bedside use, to address the needs for more sensitive, accurate and rapid diagnostics and monitoring; 2) understand disease pathogenesis, discover and validate biomarkers, particularly epigenetic biomarkers, through innovative use of advanced micro- and nanotechnologies.|
