The research interests of Jun Zhang, M.D., complement his clinical expertise in anatomic pathology, with an emphasis on cytopathology and molecular pathology. Dr. Zhang's research accomplishments include the discovery of diagnostic markers to distinguish thyroid cancer from benign growths and to differentiate between the precursor lesion for esophageal cancer (squamous dysplasia) and other reactive changes in the esophagus.
Dr. Zhang and colleagues also detected chromosomal alterations by florescence in situ hybridization (FISH) in urothelial carcinoma and rarer histologic variants of bladder cancer, and discovered the diagnostic utility of combination of HMGA2 and IMP3 qRT-PCR in thyroid neoplasms.
At Mayo Clinic, Dr. Zhang has developed more than 10 molecular diagnostic markers for use in diagnosis and prognosis. He is dedicated to combining a strong clinical and diagnostic practice with ongoing basic and translational research.
