Talk: Talk title: Brain regional vulnerability to Alzheimer’s disease: Perspectives from diffusion tensor imaging and multi-omics data

Dr. Zhang is currently the Willard T.C. Johnson Research Professor of Neurogenetics at the Department of Genetics and Genomic Sciences and the Director of the Mount Sinai Center for Transformative Disease Modeling, at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, New York, USA.

His expertise lies in bioinformatics, systems biology and artificial intelligence with applications to disease modeling and drug discovery. His team has developed a series of influential gene network inference algorithms which have been extensively used for identification of novel pathways and key targets, as well as development of drugs for a variety of complex diseases such as cancer, atherosclerosis, Alzheimer's, Parkinson’s, depression, obesity, diabetes and infectious diseases. His current research is focused on developing mechanistic molecular models of complex diseases and novel therapeutics for treating such diseases using artificial intelligence and deep machine learning approaches. As a prolific researcher, he has published over 200 papers including a number of high profile papers in the top scientific journals.
