2023 Fellow

Shizhong Dai

PhD Institution
University of California, San Francisco

Shizhong has been developing novel inhibitors that target the previously “undruggable” proteins in cancer. As a Fellow, he plans to shift his focus to neurobiology. His goal is to decode the mechanisms behind cell-cell communications that contribute to disease progression. Shizhong’s ultimate aim is to create innovative chemical biology tools that can improve our understanding and treatment of neurodegenerative diseases.
