RICHARD (ZHIFEI) DONG
A Passionate Scientist in Genomics and Bioinformatics for Cancer Diagnosis and Treatment
"SCIENCE IS SIMPLY THE WORD WE USE TO DESCRIBE A METHOD OF ORGANIZING OUR CURIOSITY."
My name is Richard Dong, a Ph.D student in Medical Biophysics at the University of Toronto, Canada. I used to live in Shanghai, China, and moved to Toronto, Canada when I was 14 years old.
I majored in Medical Physics and minored in Biology and Bioinformatics during my undergraduate study at the University of Waterloo, and am excited about how to utilize biological data to answer big questions in biology. I am fluent in Python and Linux commands, as well as a variety of bioinformatics and genomic tools for single-cell transcriptomic analysis.
RICHARD JOINS THE SCHWARTZ LAB AS A PH.D. STUDENT
After a three-month rotation process, Richard officially joins the Schwartz Lab at the Princess Margaret Cancer Centre Research. He will be co-supervised by Dr. Gregory Schwartz and Dr. Chris McIntosh while he works on his project to utilize machine learning to prediction the mechanism of radiation-induced cell death.
