Dr. Zhong-Yin Zhang is the Director of the Purdue Institute of Drug Discovery, Head, Department of Medicinal Chemistry and Molecular Pharmacology, Distinguished Professor of Medicinal Chemistry, and the Robert C. and Charlotte P. Anderson Chair in Pharmacology at Purdue University. He has a joint appointment in Chemistry and is the Director of the Chemical Genomics Facility in the Purdue Institute for Drug Discovery. Dr. Zhang is the former Robert A. Harris Professor and Chairman of the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology at the Indiana University School of Medicine in Indianapolis. Dr. Zhang received his B.S. in Chemistry from Nankai University in Tianjin, China, and his Ph.D. in Biochemistry from Purdue. His research focuses on the structure and function of protein tyrosine phosphatases (PTPs), PTP-mediated signaling mechanisms, mechanistic enzymology, and design and synthesis of PTP inhibitors as tool compounds to interrogate PTP function and as novel therapeutics for the treatment of cancer, diabetes and obesity, autoimmune disorders, and infectious diseases.
