Bing Zhang, PhD,

is an Associate Professor of Biomedical Informatics in the School of Medicine at Vanderbilt University. He received a Ph.D. in molecular genetics from the Chinese Academy of Sciences and completed postdoctoral training at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville and Oak Ridge National Laboratory. Dr. Zhang’s research interest lies in mining high-dimensional molecular data to gain novel biological insights. His current work focuses on two research areas: i) proteogenomics: filling the gap between genotypes and phenotypes using proteomics data; and ii) network medicine: understanding complex diseases through modeling and analyzing molecular networks. His group also makes methods developed in these areas available to the broad research community through user-friendly software tools. For example, their pathway analysis tool WebGestalt (URL: was accessed 55,449 times by 21,029 users and was cited in 267 scientific papers in 2014.
