Z. Hong Zhou, Ph. D. Professor Hong Zhou is a Professor in the Microbiology, Immunology, and Molecular Genetics department. His group studies the structures and functions of membrane proteins, protein-nucleic acid complexes and microbes using cryo electron microscopy (cryoEM) and cryo electron tomography (cryoET). He combines expertise in structural biology, microbiology, computational biology, and bioinformatics to address fundamental questions in biology. Recent efforts have focused on membrane protein structures and mechanisms of gene replication and transcription. Dr. Zhou was a Pew Scholar in the Biomedical Sciences, received numerous awards, including the Basil O’Connor Scholar Award, the Established Investigator Award of American Heart Association, the Burton award, and the KH Kuo Award of Distinguished Scientist.
