Botany and Plant Pathology 

  • Assistant Professor
Lilly Hall Room B-470

 General Information

Dr. Chunhua Zhang is interested in understanding the mechanisms of plant endomembrane trafficking machinery and its regulation by signaling transduction pathways. She takes advantage of chemical biology tools and combines them with cell biology approaches to study the highly dynamic and tightly regulated trafficking process. Chemical biology tools help her overcome the disadvantages of genetic knockout mutants, which include mutant lethality and genetic redundancy, in studying the dynamic trafficking process.


Dr. Zhang is currently recruiting talented individuals who are interested in plant cell biology, especially in the subject of endomembrane trafficking. Please contact Dr. Chunhua Zhang, at or 765-496-3855 if you would like to know more information about her ongoing projects.
