MEET THE TEAM

 

Our team enjoys the vibrant and inspiring research environment of Life Science Institute and Zhejiang University. Established in 2009, the Institute provides strong financial and research support to the junior principle invesitgators, who have few teaching and administrative duties and will be subjected to a tenure-track review in five years.  Graduate students have six months to do rotations in at least three labs before they finally decide who will become their future advisor.
