Ben Zhang is an undergraduate at Harvard College studying Molecular and Cellular Biology and Statistics. He works on a project in collaboration with the CDC in creating SHERLOCK/ SHINE assays for Influenza virus detection and subtyping. He also works on validating the lab’s assay design software pipeline ADAPT on viruses such as SARS-CoV-2. He is interested in working at the intersections of computational and wet-lab biology as well as creating impact with science by developing molecular diagnostics for Influenza – one of the most prevalent viral infections in the world. Ben’s work has been generally supported by the Harvard Microbial Sciences Initiative (MSI), Harvard College Research Program (HCRP) and Herchel Smith Undergraduate Research Fellowships.
