Biography :

Dr Hong-Lin Chan is head of the National Tsing-Hua University (Taiwan) for Quantitative Proteomics Group and has 10 years of experience in proteomic method development and application. Dr. Chan received his PhD degree from University College, University of London in 2005. After 2 year post-doctoral training in the wolfson institute for Biomedical Sciences, he took the current professorship from National Tsing-Hua University in Taiwan. Dr. Chan’s group has expertise in the preparation, separation and quantification of proteins and post-translational modifications using mass spectrometry and other methods. Dr Chan was one of the first users of 2D-DIGE technology which is routinely used for protein expression profiling and the group has also established platforms which perform quantitative phosphoproteomics and redox-proteomics analysis.

Research Interest :

Dr. Chan’s group is focused on: Serum biomarker discovery, characterising redox and UV stress responses in cell models, mechanisms of cellular signalling, proteomics based studies on breast cancer, prostate cancer and drug resistance formation. Methods include cell biology facilities, 2D-DIGE/MS and quantitative 2D-LC-MS/MS expression profiling.
