Sheng-Hong Chen, PH.D.
Assistant Research Fellow
Institute of Molecular Biology, Academia Sinica,
Dr. Sheng-Hong Chen received his PhD in Molecular Biology from Harvard University and completed postdoctoral training at Harvard Medical School. He is currently an Assistant Investigator at the Institute of Molecular Biology at Academia Sinica in Taipei, Taiwan. Dr. Chen's research focuses on understanding the systems properties of cells, including biological oscillators, switches, and trigger waves that control cell death, proliferation and metabolic homeostasis. He uses quantitative experimental approaches, modeling and informatics to study cell dynamics, including the propagation of lipid peroxidation signals during ferroptosis. Dr. Chen has published extensively in high-impact journals including Cell, Nature, and Science, and has been cited over 2500 times on Google Scholar. He has received prestigious fellowships and awards, including the Academia Sinica Investigator Award. His lab is currently investigating cell death signaling networks in cancer and neurodegeneration, metabolic control of cell proliferation and homeostasis, and developing new experimental and computational approaches to study cell dynamics. Through his innovative, interdisciplinary research, Dr. Chen aims to elucidate the collective behaviors of molecules that enable cell survival, with the goal of identifying new therapeutic targets.
