Chao received his PhD from University of Pennsylvania, followed by postdoctoral training at the Rockefeller University. He has a long-standing interest in studying chromatin dynamics and its role in human diseases. He has won several awards for his research, including Blavatnik Regional Award for Young Scientist, Damon Runyon Fellowship Award and NIH Pathway to Independence award.

Xiao (Sean) Chen / Postdoctoral Fellow (starting in Mar 2018)

Xiao is going to receive his PhD from Ocean University of China. He has strong passion in studying epigenetic mechanisms by both experimental and bioinformatic methods. To better understand some human diseases in the long run, he keeps pursuing continual self-renewal and iteration. Xiao likes tennis, Running Man and Nolan brothers' movies. He has a dream that one day AI will deal with the experimental data produced by bionic-robots in labs and then deliver the results to the protocol designers -- us.
