Associate Professor Li Zhang received her MBBS degree from Fudan University in Shanghai, China and PhD degree from the University of Cambridge in the UK. Associate Professor Zhang was a clinician at the China-Japan Friendship Hospital in Beijing prior to her PhD study. After completion of her PhD, she worked as a postdoctoral fellow at the Institute of Molecular and Cell Biology in National University of Singapore before joining the University of New South Wales (UNSW). 

Education

  • MB BS, Fudan University, China
  • PhD, University of Cambridge, UK

Research

Associate Professor Li Zhang's group investigates bacterial species that cause or prevent inflammatory diseases and cancers of the gastrointestinal tract.  They study bacterial genomes, bacterial virulence factors, interactions of bacterial pathogens and gut microbiome with the immune system, and novel methods to modify gut and oral microbiome and to enhance antibiotic sensitivity.  Associate Professor Zhang's earlier research was on autoimmune diseases. 

Associate Professor Li Zhang is a pioneering researcher in the field of human hosted Campylobacter species and inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). She hypothesized that some strains of Campylobacter concisus, a bacterium that usually colonises the human oral cavity, have enteric pathogenicity and are the initiator of a subgroup of human IBD. Research in Associate Professor Zhang’s group has provided critical information to this emerging research field, including disease association, C. concisus natural colonisation site, identification of two C. concisus genome species, C. concisus metabolic pathways and C. concisus genomic features associated with IBD. They recently discovered that C. concisus pSma1 plasmid is associated with severe ulcerative colitis (UC). This publication received high attention (in the top 5% of all research outputs scored by Altmetric) .  They also found that C. concisus plasmid pICON and a novel toxin gene csep1 are associated with active Crohn's disease (CD), and that patients with CD who carry pICON positive C. concisus strains are more likely to develop complications http://dx.doi.org/10.1038/s41426-018-0065-6.  UC and CD are the two major clinical forms of IBD. Associate Professor Zhang's laboratory is currently investigating the pathogenic mechanisms of IBD associated C. concisus plasmids.  

The second aspect of research in Associate Professor Zhang's group is on the impact of microbes on immune regulation.  Associate Professor Zhang hypothesized that chronic infection and inflammation may impact on PD-L1/PD1 blockade therapy.  https://doi.org/10.3389/fimmu.2018.00374  . This publication received high attention in the scientific community (current views rank top 94% and downloads rank top 93%).  The research group has recently found that some commensal gut bacterial species up-regulate intestinal epithelial expression of PD-L1 under inflammatory conditions  http://dx.doi.org/10.1128/IAI.00618-20. On-going research in Associate Professor Zhang's laboratory is investigating the mechanisms by which different gut bacterial species impact on immunotherapy.
