Zhenrun (Jerry) Zhang, PhD

Postdoctoral Scholar

Jerry received his BSc degree in Chemistry from Peking University, China in 2012 with research experience in the lab of Prof. Peng R. Chen, where he got the first exposure to microbial pathogenesis and chemical biology. He obtained his PhD degree from the Rockefeller University in 2018 and continued as a postdoctoral associate until 2019 in the lab of Prof. Howard C. Hang, where he studied the impacts of gut microbiota-derived short-chain fatty acids on the virulence of Salmonella through chemical biology approaches. Jerry joined the Pamer lab as a postdoctoral scholar in July 2019 and his current research focuses on gut microbiota-derived lantibiotics and their roles in microbiota-pathogen-host interactions.
