Hello! My name is Daniel Zhang and I’m joining the Drost lab as a Fulbright Scholar from the United States. I previously trained in the lab of Tyler Jacks at MIT helping to develop robust mouse and organoid models of colorectal cancer. I’m excited to take this training to the Maxima Center, where I’ll be developing malignant rhabdoid tumor (MRT) T-lymphocyte co-culture systems in hopes of finding therapeutic vulnerabilities of the disease.
Outside of research, I love listening to music, playing sports, and exploring new places.
