Libin Zhang, Ph.D.Post-Doctoral Associate

Libin Zhang joined the Russell lab as a Postdoctoral Associate in Nov, 2017. He received his Ph.D. in Organic Chemistry at Institute of Chemistry Chinese Academy of Sciences, Beijing, China, in 2012. In 2013, he joined the Department of Biomedical Engineering, School of Medicine, Tsinghua University, Beijing, China as a Postdoctoral Research Fellow to develop antibody-polymer-dye conjugates. He also developed dual radio labeled polymer-drug conjugates strategy in the Department of Pharmaceutics and Pharmaceutical Chemistry, University of Utah as a Postdoctoral Research Fellow until Nov, 2017. Since he joined the Russell lab, his study has focused on the development of enzyme-polymer conjugates with functional groups through polymer based protein engineering methods.

Discovery at the rich interface of chemistry, biology, and material science to incorporate
biological molecules and polymers for the creation of multifunctional materials.
