Jun Zhou is currently an ORISE post-doctoral fellow working in Division of Genetic & Molecular Toxicology, National Center for Toxicological Research (NCTR), Food and Drug Administration (FDA), US. He is working with Dr. Xuefei to do in vitro toxicology assessment for toxic chemicals using 3-D Air-Liquid-Interface (ALI) airway tissue model. In his ongoing studies, data collected from multiple dimensions, e.g. Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) analysis, secretome-profiling analysis, endogenous metabolites, PCR array, and toxicology endpoints are integrated and bridged into a high-content metabolic scenario. Jun has a bachelor degree in veterinary medicine, a master degree in marine chemistry, and a PhD degree in Toxicology received from University of Georgia (2018, US). His master thesis was about the mimic and investigation of natural degradation of synthesized capsaicin and the assessment of its environmental toxicities. His doctoral dissertation was about the analysis and integration of trans-platform metabolomics and metagenomics data in terms of the gut-microbiota dependent metabolisms in rodent models treated with aflatoxin B1 and green tea polyphenols. In addition to Metabolomics Society, Jun is also active in American Society of Nutrition (ASN) and Society of Toxicology (SOT), where he takes several service duties in different committees.
