Personal profile


Dr Qi Zhang has a longstanding interest in the structure and function of epigenetic modifiers. She is a postdoctoral researcher in the Davidovich Lab at Monash University since 2016. Her current research focus is to understand fundamental mechanisms governing the regulation of epigenetic modifiers in gene silencing, with a particular interest in the histone methyltransferase Polycomb repressive complex 2 (PRC2). Before that, she was a postdoctoral fellow at the Structural Genomics Consortium, University of Toronto, studying the structure and function of ubiquitination complexes involved in stress response and gene regulation. She completed her PhD in 2013, at China Agricultural University, investigating the molecular mechanism of the regulation of a histone demethylase.

Dr Zhang currently holds an ARC DECRA Fellowship (2018-2020) and is a recipient of the NHMRC EL1 Investigator Grant (2021-2025).
