Eugene Xu, Ph.D.
Eugene Xu received his Ph.D. in Genetics from the University of Chicago in the lab of Dr. Chung-I Wu, Department of Ecology and Evolution. He has been researching in the areas of developmental biology and reproductive genetics since his graduation. His research led to the identification of components of the core machinery of animal sperm production, including the DAZ gene family, one of the most common molecular lesions for human infertility. In addition, via the high throughput RNA immunoprecipitation approach, he has identified cell cycle targets of the conserved core reproductive components and revealed novel pathways important not only for human development and fertility but also for prostate and ovarian cancers. Before joining the Cellular Screening Center, he was on the faculty of Nanjing Medical University and Northwestern University.
Chun-yi Chiang, M.S.
Chun-Yi received his master degree with the specialization in cell biology from Illinois Institute of Technology. Working at the Institute of Molecular Medicine in Taiwan University equipped him the fundamental molecular and cell biology techniques. He gained precious research experience on exploring the interactions between cancer cells, stromal cells and microenvironment while working at ovarian cancer research lab in The University of Chicago. Chun-yi joins the Cellular Screening Center in 2021 and he runs screening projects and helps with the lab maintenance.
