Prof. Zhiyuan Hu

Hu’s lab is focused on in vitro diagnostics for immune diseases based on proteomics and nano technology. We have developed a microfluidic platform for high throughput peptides/peptoids synthesis. We also have developed a method for high throughput peptide on-beads screening based on magnetic beads enrichment, MS sequencing, and Surface Plasmon Resonance imaging (SPRi) chip analysis. The goal is to discover disease specific biomarkers of autoantigens and allergens, then to further develop peptide chip for personal diagnosis for autoimmune and allergy diseases.
