  • David B. Arnold Professor of Science, Harvard University, Investigator of the Howard Hughes Medical Institute
    Biography
      Xiaowei Zhuang, Ph.D., is the David B. Arnold Professor of Science at Harvard University and an investigator of Howard Hughes Medical Institute. She pioneered the development of single-molecule, super-resolution, and genomic-scale imaging methods for the studies of biological systems. Dr. Zhuang invented STORM, a super-resolution imaging method, and discovered novel cellular structures using this method. She invented MERFISH, a single-cell transcriptome imaging method, and elucidated gene expression regulation in cells, and revealed molecular identities, spatial organization and functions of cells in tissues using MERFISH. She also developed a multiplexed FISH method that allows direct visualization of the 3D organization of chromatin in the cell nucleus.
      Dr. Zhuang received her B.Sc. degree in physics from the University of Science and Technology of China, her Ph.D. degree in physics under the supervision of Prof. Y. R. Shen from University of California at Berkeley, and her postdoctoral training in biophysics in the lab of Prof. Steven Chu at Stanford University. She joined the faculty of Harvard University in 2001 and became a Howard Hughes Medical Institute investigator in 2005.
      Dr. Zhuang is a member of the US National Academy of Sciences, the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, the American Philosophical Society, and a foreign associate of the Chinese Academy of Sciences and the European Molecular Biology Organization. She received honorary doctorate degrees from Stockholm University and the Delft University of Technology. Dr. Zhuang has received a number of awards, including Vilcek Prize in Biomedical Science, Breakthrough Prize in Life Sciences, Pearl Meister Greengard Prize, National Academy of Sciences Award for Scientific Discovery, Heineken Prize for Biochemistry and Biophysics, National Academy of Sciences Award in Molecular Biology, Raymond and Beverly Sackler International Prize in Biophysics, Max Delbruck Prize in Biological Physics, MacArthur Fellowship, etc.
