Bio
Dr. Zhong is a professor of Pharmacology and Toxicology in the Department of Pharmaceutical Sciences of School of Pharmacy at the University of Connecticut. He received a BSc degree in Biology from Peking University and a PhD degree in Molecular Biology from Wageningen University. He was trained as a postdoctoral fellow in Human Genetics at Yale University School of Medicine. Dr. Zhong was an Assistant and Associate Professor at University of Kansas Medical Center before he joined UConn. He is a member of American Society for Pharmacology and Experimental Therapeutics and International Society for the Study of Xenobiotics as well as other 5 scientific societies. He serves as a Councilor (2009-2012) and Chair (2021-2022) of the Division for Drug Metabolism and Disposition of ASPET. Research in Dr. Zhong’s laboratory mainly focuses on drug metabolism, developmental pharmacology, pharmacogenomics, and personalized medicine.

DETAILS
Bio
Dr. Haiming Cao is a Senior Investigator at the National Institutes of Health, USA. Dr. Cao earned his Ph.D. in Biochemistry from the University of Nevada Reno, and did his postdoctoral training at Harvard University. Dr. Cao studies the physiological function of long noncoding RNAs in glucose and lipid metabolism. The Cao laboratory has showed that mouse lncRNAs play diverse roles in metabolic homeostasis and recently demonstrated that non-conserved human lncRNAs can also function as vital regulators of metabolic homeostasis using a humanized mouse model.
