Chen Chen
Graduate Student

Hi, my name is Chen Chen. You can call me Double Chen ^^. I grew up in Beijing, China, where I graduated from Tsinghua University with a Bachelor degree in biological science. I spent a year in Dr. Yigong Shi's lab studying the structure and function of macromolecules through crystallography and biochemical approach. Last summer, I joined Tsinghua team to participate in the iGEM (international Genetic Engineering Machine) competition and started to know about system biology. We worked in a microbiology lab to generate an E.coli strain which can transport signal protein along a gradient back and forth.Now my research interest lies in neurobiology and system biology. Also, a chance to explore more structural biology and quantitative methods will be great.

In my spare time, I like watching movies, doing some yoga and cooking. When I get chance, I enjoy travelling and taking photograph. Open-minded, straight-forward and detail-oriented would be best three words to describe me. I'm looking forward to get to know all of you!
