Guanhua Zhu 朱冠華
Assistant Professor 助理教授
Dr. Guanhua Zhu is an Assistant Professor at the Department of Chemical Pathology in The Chinese University of Hong Kong. Prior to joining CUHK, he worked at Genome Institute of Singapore with a research focus on developing data-driven approaches to study cancer and profile circulating tumor DNA to assist in cancer liquid biopsy. Dr. Zhu received his Bachelor's degree from Nanjing Agricultural University, Master’s degree from The University of Edinburgh, and a Doctor of Philosophy degree from Nanyang Technological University. His research interests are using computational approaches to decipher biological data and translate into clinical applications. He developed bioinformatics approaches with artificial intelligence for detecting cancer and quantitatively measuring disease burden in liquid biopsy.

Specialised Research Area(s):

  • Bioinformatics
