About your speaker

Dr Peijun Zhang obtained her PhD in Biophysics and Physiology from University Virginia, M.S. in Physics and B.S. in Electrical Engineering from Nanjing University, China. She was a postdoc, and later a staff scientist, at the National Cancer Institute, NIH. In 2006, she joined the faculty of the University of Pittsburgh, and was promoted to associate professor with tenure in 2012.

Dr Zhang has received many awards, including the Wellcome Trust Investigator Award, Carnegie Science Emerging Female Scientist Award, and University of Pittsburgh Senior Vice Chancellor’s Award.

Abstract

The talk will present an integrated, atomistic understanding of the molecular mechanisms of large protein complexes and assemblies involved in HIV-1 pathogenesis obtained by developing and combining novel technologies for high-resolution cryoEM and cryoET.
