 Principle Investigator Yunjie Zhao, PhD Associate Professor Institute of Biophysics Department of Physics Central China Normal University Email: yjzhaowh@mail.ccnu.edu.cn Bio: Dr. Yunjie Zhao received his PhD degree in 2012 from Huazhong University of Science & Technology, Wuhan, China, under the supervision of Prof. Yi Xiao. He is now an associate professor in Department of Physics at Central China Normal University. Before joining the university, he was a Research Scientist in Prof. Chen Zeng's lab in Department of Physics at the George Washington University, USA. His doctoral research was about computational studies on the structure and dynamics of non-coding RNA. He developed automated and efficient nucleic acid structure modeling (3dRNA, Scientific Reports, 2012; Nucleic Acids Research, 2017), evaluation (3dRNAscore, Nucleic Acids Research, 2015), and contact prediction (DIRECT, BMC Bioinformatics, 2019) programs. Another portion of his work centers on understanding the mechanisms of biomolecular regulations including STAT3 (Transcription, 2013), kinase (HKPocket, BMC Bioinformatics, 2019), drug design (PloS one, 2014; Chem J Chinese U, 2017; Chinese Physics B, 2017; Bioinformatics, 2018;34(18):3131-3136.), MID1 proteins (PloS one, 2015), HDAC activity (Nature Immunology, 2016), and lectin redesign (Scientific Reports, 2017) that are involved in programmable cell death, birth defects, and other diseases. In short, the research program integrates molecular modeling, MD simulation, dynamical network analysis, and deep learning to tackle the human diseases at molecular level.
