Yi Zhang, Ph.D.


 

Yi Zhang is currently an Investigator of the Howard Hughes Medical Institute, and the Fred Rosen Chair Professor of Genetics at Harvard Medical School and Boston Children’s Hospital. He obtained his Ph.D. from the Institute of Molecular Biophysics at Florida State University, where he studied the "hammerhead" ribozyme. His postdoctoral training was at the Robert Wood Johnson Medical School of UMDNJ where he identified and characterized several histone deacetylase complexes including the Sin3 and NuRD complexes.
