Shaobin Zhong

Dr. Shaobin Zhong received a B.S. degree and an M.S. degree in Plant Breeding and Genetics from Nanjing Agricultural University, and a Ph.D. degree in Plant Pathology from North Dakota State University (NDSU). He joined the faculty of the Department of Plant Pathology at NDSU as an assistant professor in 2007, and was promoted to associate professor with tenure in 2013 and full professor in 2019. Dr. Zhong teaches advanced mycology and has major research programs focused on Fusarium head blight and biology of cereal fungal pathogens. His research interests include genetics and molecular mapping of host resistance genes, molecular mechanisms of fungal pathogenicity and virulence, plant-fungal interactions, and population genetics of plant fungal pathogens. Before joining the faculty at NDSU, Dr. Zhong was an assistant professor at the University of Hawaii at Manoa, where he had teaching and research responsibilities on molecular interactions of plant-fungal pathogens. He is currently assisted in his research by Dr. Yueqiang (Michael) Leng and Joseph Mullins.
