Research Statement

Chunchao Zhang's present research focuses on developing bioinformatic and statistical tools to analyze high-throughput, high-dimensional omics data. The majority of his research is geared towards interpretation and integration of different types of high-throughput omics datasets, including genomics, proteomics, and metabolomics, to understand the mechanism of the action of immunotherapy in pediatric cancers.

Multi-omics data-driven precision medicine brings a new hope to understand human diseases in a more comprehensive way than single-level analysis.

H developed a proteogenomic caller which allows identifying novel gene products, including alternative splicing, mutations, and other structural variants, during tumorigenesis (Cell 2020, 182: 245-261) and organogenesis (Genome Research 2020, 30: 263-275; Nature Communications 2018, 9: 1-13).

His work has been published in Cell, Genome Research, Nature Communications, EBioMedicine, and Molecular & Cellular Proteomics.
