Dr. Bing Zhang received his Ph.D. in Biochemistry from School of Medicine, Case Western Reserve University in 2015. He was a postdoctoral fellow at Harvard Department of Stem Cell and Regenerative Biology between 2015 and 2020, studying adult stem cells and regeneration in the mammalian skin system. He received Harvard Distinction in Teaching Award and Charles A. King Trust Postdoctoral Fellowship. His work was selected as one of the “10 remarkable discoveries from 2020” by Nature. Dr. Zhang is a principal investigator of Westlake University from September 2020.
Dr. Feng Yang received his Ph.D. in Life Science from the Division of Life Science, Hong Kong University of Science and Technology in 2021. He is now a postdoctoral fellow in Zhang lab. He is interested in studying the metabolic regulation of skin regeneration, activities of melanocyte stem cells and hair follicle stem cells and cell-cell crosstalk.
Han received her M.S. in neurobiology from the Center for Neuroscience at Zhejiang University School of Medicine in 2020. Now, she is interested in the regulation of skin stem cells by nervous system. Her current work focuses on the regulation of melanocyte stem cells by sympathetic nerve in various regeneration situations.
Chen Wang is a PhD student enrolled in 2020. She graduated with a degree in Biological Science from the School of Life Sciences, Southwest University, China. She is interested in cell-cell interaction and signaling network, especially about cell fate determination and cell behavior regulation in cancer and other pathological conditions. Her current work focuses on the interaction and regulation between nerve and skin stem cells.
Xiaoling received her B.S. in Horticulture from South China Agricultural University in 2020. She is interested in learning the mechanism of cell-cell interaction through the combination of experiments and bioinformatics. She is working on processing the multi-omics sequencing results and practicing experimental skills currently.
Yang graudated from China Pharmarceutical University as an undergraduate student, majored in pharmarcy. She joined Bing's lab as a phD student in 2021. She is interested in melanocyte stem cells and related diseases.
Hualin received her M.S. in Pharmaceutical Science from the College of Pharmaceutical Science at Zhejiang University in 2020. She joined Bing's lab as a PhD student in 2021. She is interested in the interaction of nerve–stem cell.
Chao received his M.S. in Anhui Medical University in 2017. His M.S. focused on exploring ubiquitination and neddylation system. From 2017 to 2021, Chao worked in the R&D department of Qingdao Allcare Biological Development Company. He was mainly responsible for huMSC product development and process improvement. Chao joined Zhang Lab in 2021. He is in charge of lab affairs and mouse work.
Peng received his B.S. in Nanchang University and joined Zhang lab in 2021. His interest focuses on the changes in the biological function of skin tissue cells under stress. He is now in charge of lab affairs and mouse work.
Jingyu joined Bing’s lab as a visiting student in 2021 summer. He graduated from Peking University with B.S. degree in biological science in 2021. In Bing’s lab, he is fascinated with the metabolic coupling and crosstalk between various niche cell types and hair follicle during regeneration. Also, he is curious about the effect that dietary interventions may exert on the behavior of various cell types in skin.
Luyang joined Bing’s lab as a visiting student in 2021 autumn. He is a senior student in the School of Life Sciences in Wuhan University. In Bing’s lab, he will finish his undergraduate project. Luyang is interested in stem cell niche, he is also curious about the benefits of combing hair.
