itemprop="name">Jeffrey Joyce, Ph.D., vice president for research. "Dr. Zhou brings years of expertise in molecular biophysics and physiology research, a collaborative entrepreneurial outlook to research and we look forward to her leadership and impact here at KCUMB and within the region's research community."

As research investigator, Dr. Zhou's responsibilities will include leading key biomedical and translational research initiatives, particularly in the neuroscience arena, collaborating with researchers at other local organizations, including the Kansas City Area Life Sciences Institute and its key stakeholders, and providing student research opportunities.

"We are delighted Dr. Zhou is joining KCUMB," said Dr. Richard Barohn, vice chancellor for research at the University of Kansas Medical Center. "In doing so, she will become a member of Frontiers: The Heartland for Clinical and Translational Research and will work with a number of scientists exploring the pathogenesis of severe neurodegenerative disorders such as ALS and Alzheimer's disease.  With Dr. Zhou's hire, we have developed a critical mass of cutting edge researchers who are making important discoveries in these diseases."

With this hire KCUMB is committing significant resources to expand its laboratory facilities on campus, establish a scientific core in the neurosciences and invest in additional scientific research equipment to enhance these new research efforts.

"Dr. Zhou and her staff will be key components of enhanced neuroscience research not only on the KCUMB campus, but her unique research focus will be a resource to the greater Kansas City scientific community," said Marc B.
