Google scholar

 

The group leader Yansheng Liu received his PhD of Biomedical Sciences at Shanghai Institute for Biological Sciences, Chinese Academy of Sciences. In May 2011, Yansheng started his postdoctoral training in the laboratory of Dr. Ruedi Aebersold in ETH Zurich, Switzerland. In November 2017 Yansheng joined the Yale University School of Medicine as a Tenure Track Assistant Professor in the Institute of Yale Cancer Biology.

 

Dr. Liu has published first/ co-first author papers in Cell, Nature Biotechnology, Nature Communications, Cell Reports, Molecular Systems Biology, Molecular Cellular Proteomics, PNAS, and other journals. Dr. Liu now serves as the Editorial Board member of Proteomics and Proteomics-Clinical Applications, and the Associated Editor of Frontiers in Physiology.  

Dr. Wenxue Li

Postdoctoral researcher

 

 

Wenxue Li completed his Ph.D. in 2018 February in University of Fribourg School of Medicine, Switzerland. His Ph.D. research focused on the mass spectrometry based analysis of neurodegenerative disease, measurements of biochemical molecules including the neuropeptides, and proteomics on extracellular vesicles associated proteins in the central nervous system.

 

Wenxue started as a postdoc in Dr. Yansheng Liu lab in Yale Cancer Biology Institute from March 2018. He is working on the data independent acquisition (DIA) based proteomics. His research focuses on proteome abundance and turnover profiling at translational and post-translational levels in cancer cells and disease processes.

 

Wenxue already has a few first author publications in Liu Lab.

Dr. Yi Di

Postdoctoral researcher

 

 

Yi Di received his Doctor’s degree in Chemical Biology from Fudan University China in 2019. His Ph.D. research focused on the development of multiplex Data independent acquisition (DIA) methods. Also, his research included investigation of protein modification, such as glycosylation and specifically for sialylation. Dr. Yi has two first-author papers published in Analytical Chemistry during his Ph.D.

 

Yi joined Dr. Liu's lab in the Department of Pharmacology and Cancer Biology Institute at Yale University as a Postdoctoral in July 2019. His research focuses on protein interactions and quantification of protein modifications.

Dr. Barbora Salovska

Visiting Scientist

Barbora Salovska completed her Ph.D. at the Faculty of Medicine of the Charles University in Hradec Kralove, Czech Republic, in 2017. Her Ph.D. research was mainly focused on phosphoproteomic analysis of signalling pathways triggered by ionizing radiation-induced DNA damage and modulation of these pathways by small molecule kinase inhibitors.
In 2015, she was awarded the Sciex-NMSCh fellowship to work in the laboratory of Dr. Ruedi Aebersold at ETH Zurich, Switzerland, where she was studying composition and protein-protein interactions of key protein complexes involved in response to DNA damage using DIA proteomics (SWATH-MS).As a post-doctoral researcher in the laboratory of Dr. Jiri Bartek at the Institute of Molecular Genetics of the ASCR, v. v. i. in Prague, Czech Republic, she is investigating the role of oxidative stress in ionizing radiation-induced cellular senescence, cysteine redox signalling in senescent cells by redox proteomics, and dynamic changes of proteome in cells after senescence induction by genotoxic stress.

 

Barbora joined Dr. Liu's lab as a visiting scientist since September 2018. Her research focuses on bioinformatic analysis and pipeline establishment of DIA proteomics.

Dr. Chongde Wu

Visiting Scholar

 

Chongde Wu received his Doctor’s degree in Fermentation Engineering from Jiangnan University China in 2012. After that, he started his work as a teacher in College of Light Industry, Textile and Food Engineering of Sichuan University, China, where he focused on microbial physiology and systems biotechnology.

 

Chongde joined Dr. Liu's lab in the Department of Pharmacology and Cancer Biology Institute at Yale University as a visiting scholar in September 2018. His research focuses on Data independent acquisition (DIA) proteomics and their applications in systems biology studies.

Erli Gao M.D.

Visiting Fellow

 

Erli Gao completed her M.D. at the Shanghai Jiaotong University, China, in 2010. Her M.D. research was mainly focused on cancer genetics, chemotherapy resistance mechanism, circulating tumor cells in breast and thyroid cancer. Then she started her work as a surgeon focus on surgical treatment of breast and thyroid tumors in Department of Thyroid and Breast Surgery, the First Affiliated Hospital of Soochow University, Suzhou, Jiangsu Province, China.

 

Erli joined Dr. Liu's lab as a visiting scholar scientist since June 2019. She is learning proteomics and the corresponding applications in cancer biology studies and bioinformatic analysis.
