Dr. Luoping Zhang is an Associate Adjunct Professor of Toxicology in the Division of Environmental Health Sciences, School of Public Health at UC Berkeley. Dr. Zhang obtained her B.S. in Chemistry from Wuhan University and M.S. in Biochemistry from Huazhong University of Science and Technology, Wuhan, China. After completing her research fellowship, which was awarded from The Third World Academy of Science in Italy. She moved to Vancouver and received her Ph.D. in Simon Fraser University, British Columbia, Canada. She is very active in the scientific community, being a member of Society of Toxicology (SOT), NorCal SOT (Northern California chapter), Environmental Mutagenesis Society and American Association of Cancer Research. She belongs to an International research group that investigates benzene-induced toxicity and leukemogenesis, and conducts many studies on environmental exposure related issues in China with her collaborators. Currently, she resides in Berkeley and co-directs the Gene and Environment Laboratory.
Dr. Zhang’s research focuses on understanding the molecular mechanisms of bone marrow toxicity and carcinogenesis caused by benzene (BZ) and other toxic chemicals including butadiene (BD), formaldehyde (FA), tricholoroethylene (TCE) and arsenic (As). Her investigations have mainly involved in the detection of biomarkers associated with these chemical exposures in molecular epidemiological studies conducted with national and international collaborators. Her group employs and develops novel high-throughput technologies, such as, molecular cytogenetics (OctoChrome FISH, fluorescence in situ hybridization), single-cell genetic analysis (SCGA) and array-based toxicogenomic technologies to further understand the causes and mechanisms of leukemia and lymphoma associated with exposure to environmental pollutants. Most recently, she has incorporated a systems biology approach, leading research efforts to apply toxicogenomics such as gene expression profiling and epigenetics in molecular epidemiology studies and RNAi (RNA interference) in human cell culture studies of toxic chemical exposure.
