Research Group



Chenming (Mike) Zhang's Laboratory at Virginia Tech


We welcome your visits to our Protein Separation Group website. Mike Zhang's research group in the Department of Biological Systems Engineering at Virginia Tech was established in Jan. 2001. Since then many students from many parts of the world have conducted research here. As you will see from our research page, our research is centered in proteins. From protein expressions in transgenic plants to protein engineering, and from protein purification to its assembly with other molecules, our research covers a broad spectrum of the production and application of this wonderful type of molecule. Our goal is to benefit humanity from curing diseases to the prevention of disease and from valued added product to sustainable energy production from biomass.

If you are as excited as we are about our research and a hard working individual with a desire to be successful and make a difference in science and engineering, please come and join in us. Together, we can make a difference!

Go Hokies!
