Dr. Huiping Zhang Recieved 2022 Wing Tat Lee Award

Congratulation to Dr. Huiping Zhang who has recieved the 2022 Wing Tat Lee Award

Headshot of Dr. Zhang.Dr. Zhang will collaborate with Ying Liu, PhD, associate professor of genetics at Soochow University, to study the genetic mechanism of 22q11.2 deletion syndrome (22q11.DS), which is a disorder characterized by heart abnormalities, recurrent infections and distinctive facial features. They will use genome editing techniques to study the function of genes and genetic variants within the 22q11.2 deletion region. Functional genetic variants identified in this deletion region could be useful diagnostic biomarkers for 22q11.DS
