Dr Guicheng Zhang
moved to Australia in 2001 and began a PhD project in indoor environmental quality and child health through Curtin University of Technology
In 2005, he was awarded a PhD.
is a full time academic in the School of Paediatrics and Child Health (SPACH) at the University of Western Australia.
has established and continues to run a growing gene by environment (G/E) interaction research group.
He is also a group leader in the Division of Cell Biology at Telethon Institute for Child Health research (TICHR).
Since 2011, he has been a Senior Statistical Advisor in Princess Margaret Hospital for Children.
has had continuous financial support from the NH&MRC since 2007, including an NHMRC early career fellowship (2007-2010), an NHMRC project grant.
NHMRC early career fellowship, he
has been awarded two grants from the Asthma Foundation of Western Australia
was also awarded two UWA Research Grants.
In 2010, he was granted a New Independent Researcher Infrastructure Support award, recognising his outstanding achievements as a new independent medical and health researcher in Western Australia.
research project proposed to examine the complex interactions between genetic, environmental and epigenetic determinants of asthma.
He has extensive experience in asthma genetics and environmental health, as well as biostatistics, for investigating complex G/E interactions.
multidisciplinary background is the key strength for his
further career development.
expertise in mathematical modelling and extensive knowledge in complex statistical analyses render him capable of deciphering the complex G/E interactions on asthma, thereby facilitating his
further career development in this field of research.
has established a number of research projects which investigate G/E interaction on asthma and allergy.
