Mei Zhang

Dr. Zhang was trained in clinical medicine and pediatrics for 11 years followed by 4 year post-PhD programs in children disorders with dementia. He was an associate professor of pediatric genetic disorders in Shanghai Jiaotong University and Shanghai Institute for Pediatric Research in China. Being a research fellow at National Institute of Health in the US, he obtained tremendous experience on lysosomal storage disease and dementia. He published major findings on the cellular mechanism of dementia caused by the loss of intracellular trafficking. As an instructor and research fellow at Massachusetts General Hospital and Harvard Medical School, he published novel findings on cellular mechanisms as contributors to Alzheimer's disease. He led immunology and neurology drug discovery programs as lab head, senior scientist and principal investigator in Synta Pharmaceuticals and EMD Serono Research and Development Institute. He also initiated novel program looking into autism to strategize integrative intervention to autism. He is actively involved in interactions to cultivate these strategies with academic professors and clinicians in Harvard/McLean Hospital/MGH healthcare centers. He is currently serving as one of the key members in American Chinese Medical Exchange Society, North American Journal of Medical Sciences, and North American Journal of Medicine and Health (Chinese).
