Anhui Medical University

Tongzhang Zheng, Sc.D, professor of epidemiology, investigates environmental exposures, occupational exposures, gene-environment interactions, metabolic disease risk, and women and children’s health in China. China’s extraordinarily rapid economic development has led to severe environmental deterioration. The range and diversity of environmental exposures in China provides a robust setting for studying environmental health effects. Professor Zheng collaborates with scientists from several universities in China, building large cohort studies that track population-level health impacts over many years.
