Dr. Wei Chen (Jack) is a professor and PI of Zhejiang University School of Medicine. He received B.S. and M.S. from Zhejiang University in 2001 and 2003, majored in Electrical Engineering. In 2009 he received Ph.D. in Bioengineering at Georgia Institute of Technology, USA. He continued his postdoctoral training at the Coulter Department of Biomedical Engineering , at Georgia Institute of Technology USA during 2009-2014. In Summer, 2014, he joined Zhejiang University. Same year, he received supports of “1000 Young Scientists Program” from Chinese Government. His main research interest is to develop single-molecule biophysical technology to study membrane receptors’ dynamic functions quantitatively and to explore the molecular mechanism by which receptor-ligand interactions regulate neuron cell and immune cell functions. In a long run, to integrate single-molecule techniques, high-throughput technology, biological experiments and computational modeling to understand neural and immune functions from the molecular level to systematic level.
