Dr You Zhou
My research focuses on understanding the pathogenesis of complex diseases using high-throughput technologies and systems biology. Over the course of my career, I have worked for, the World Health Organization, Finnish National Institute for Health and Welfare, and the Chinese State Key Laboratory of Virology. These positions have led to impactful presentations at major conferences (e.g., WHO meeting in Nutrition, Physical Activity and Obesity; EU Framework 7 project meeting) and several scientific awards including a Young Scientist Award from a biennial international forum, Nordic Lipid Forum.
On a personal level, I like problem solving, brainstorming ideas and contributing to active research discussions. I would therefore very much appreciate the opportunity to work with people from different disciplines.
