Dr. Zeng received her college education from Beijing Agricultural University in China, where she studied plant physiology and biochemistry. She then obtained Master’s degree in Biophysics from Tsinghua University before arriving in the US to pursue further her studies. She obtained her PhD in the Integrative Program of Cellular, Molecular and Biophysical studies at Columbia University in the City of New York, where she identified a gene that is critical for embryonic development and inhibiting cancer formation. She subsequently completed her postdoctoral training on cartilage development at Harvard Medical School before joining the faculty of Tufts University School of Medicine in the program of Cellular, Molecular and Developmental Biology (CMDB). Since arriving at Tufts, she has put forth tremendous efforts to approaching cartilage-related diseases from novel angles, integrating concepts of developmental biology with disease perspectives, as well as with tissue engineering. She is currently an Associate Professor of the CMDB program and the Department of Integrative Physiology and Pathobiology, with a secondary appointment in the Department of Orthopedics at Tufts Medical Center. Dr. Zeng is devoted to education and learning. She has mentored trainees and students of all levels. In addition, she serves as the co-director for the “Building Diversity in Biomedical Sciences” program, where undergraduate students of minority and economically disadvantaged background perform summer research in in the Sackler School of Graduate Medical Sciences at Tufts University. Her classroom teaching includes Dental Histology, Bone Biology and Developmental Biology.

Research Interest

Our focus is to study novel regulators of cartilage development and maintenance, as well as develop technologies to facilitate these investigations.
