Professor of Medicine
Harvard Medical School and Brigham and Women's Hospital
Dr. Zhou is the founding director of the Harvard Center for Polycystic Kidney Disease Research which was established via funding from the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases (NIDDK) in 2005. Dr. Zhou’s research focuses on the understanding of inherited kidney disease. Dr Zhou is an internationally renowned leader on studies of polycystic kidney disease. In the past 20 years of studies of polycystic kidney disease, Dr. Zhou has made outstanding contributions in many areas of PKD research including the creation of the first targeted mouse model for polycystic kidney disease, the identification of ion channel function of polycystin protein family to the understanding of polycystin biology.
Dr. Jing Zhou graduated from Shanghai Medical University in China and Oulu University in Finland. She joined the Harvard faculty as Assistant Professor in 1993, after her postdoctoral training at Yale and six year of medical practice in China. Dr. Zhou is Professor of Medicine at the Harvard Medical School and a member of the renal division at the Brigham and Women’s Hospital and the Genetics Department at Harvard Medical School. Dr. Zhou is the first female recipient of the Young Investigator Award from the American Society of Nephrology and American Heart Association (2001) and the first women recipient of the Lillian Jean Kaplan International Prize jointly awarded by the International Society of Nephrology, Lillian Jean Kaplan Foundation and the Polycystic Kidney Disease Foundation (2007). Dr. Zhou has served on a variety of national and international grants review committees including a 4-year term as a permanent member of General Medicine B and Cellular and Molecular Biology of the Kidney at NIH and a 7-year term as a member of the Scientific Advisory Board of Polycystic Kidney Disease Foundation. Dr. Zhou has delivered over 100 scientific lectures and chaired over 20 sessions at National or International meetings. In her leisure time, Dr. Zhou enjoys cooking, reading, and gardening.
