NAME:
Yi Zhao


ADDRESS:
1028, Durham Research Center, University of Nebraska Medical Center, Omaha NE.


EMAIL AND PHONE:
yzha1@unmc.edu, 402-559-5256


EDUCATIONAL BACKGROUND:

2003-2007 B.S., Pharmaceutical Science, Huazhong University of Science and Technology (HUST).
2008         Ph.D. Candidate, Biopharmaceutical Science, HUST.

 

RESEARCH INTERESTS

My research seeks to understand the interaction of polymer in multidrug resistant cancer in vitro and in vivo. With the aids of pharmaceutical science, physical chemistry, immunology, molecular cell biology, we investigate the mechanism of multidrug resistance and evaluate the links between multidrug resistance, tumor initiating cells, cancer progression and metastasis.

List interesting facts about you:   

I was a child actress in a theater.  When I was in the middle school, I volunteered to write about literature issues for my middle school. As an undergraduate, I was the president of the student senate and the mistress of the annual ceremony. In the end, I chose science for my life's work.
I played the waist drum, which is one of the oldest folk instruments in China.
I like spicy food.
