Featuring talks by
Prof. Xiao Wang,
MIT / Broad Institute, U.S.A.
Topic: Translating spatial cell atlas to tissue function
Prof. Ling-Ling Chen,
Investigator, CAS Center for Excellence in Molecular Cell Science, Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS); New Cornerstone Science Laboratory, China
Topic: Lnc-ing RNA processing and function
Prof. Chuan He,
The University of Chicago / HHMI, U.S.A.
Topic: Reversible RNA methylation in gene expression regulation
The session seeks to examine the latest developments in RNA processing, function, and regulation. The speakers will cover diverse topics such as reversible RNA methylation in gene expression regulation, long noncoding RNAs (lncRNAs) processing and function, and spatial translation cell atlas. These lectures will not only present latest fundamental advances on how different RNA species regulate gene expression and impact cellular function, but also present cutting-edge technologies for spatial translation analysis and cellular granule research, highlighting new frontiers in RNA biology. This session offers a unique opportunity for those interested in RNA to learn from experts in the field, gain knowledge of the latest research and developments, and engage in new areas of RNA research and genomics.
Chuan He, Ph.D., is the John T. Wilson Distinguished Service Professor in the Department of Chemistry and Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology at the University of Chicago / HHMI. He received his bachelor of science degree in 1994 from the University of Science and Technology of China and his Ph.D. in chemistry from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 2000, studying under Professor Stephen J. Lippard. After training as a Damon-Runyon postdoctoral fellow with Professor Gregory L. Verdine at Harvard University, he joined the University of Chicago as an Assistant Professor, rising to Associate Professor in 2008 and Full Professor in 2010. He was selected as an investigator of the Howard Hughes Medical Institute in 2013.
He's research spans a broad range of fields including chemical biology, RNA biology, epigenetics, biochemistry, and genomics. His recent research concerns reversible RNA and DNA methylation in biological regulation. In 2011, his group discovered reversible RNA methylation as a new mechanism of gene expression regulation. His laboratory characterized the RNA m6A methyltransferase complex and several key reader proteins that bind preferentially to m6A-modified RNA and regulate their stability and translation. In 2020, He's laboratory reported prevalent m6A methylation on chromatin-associated regulatory RNAs (carRNAs), which regulates chromatin state and global transcription. The reversible methylation of carRNA controls mammalian and plant development. His laboratory has spearheaded the development of enabling technologies to study the biology of RNA and DNA modifications.
Xiao Wang, Ph.D., is a core institute member of the Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard and an Assistant Professor in the Department of Chemistry at MIT. She started her lab in 2019 to develop and apply new chemical, biophysical, and genomic tools to better understand brain function and dysfunction at the molecular level.
Wang joined the MIT and Broad after conducting postdoctoral research at Stanford University with Professor Karl Deisseroth, where she was a Fellow of the Life Sciences Research Foundation. At Stanford, she developed comprehensive methods for analyzing RNA in intact tissues that merge sequencing with imaging, in order to reveal the locations of various cell types in the brain.
Wang received her B.S. in chemistry and molecular engineering from Peking University in 2010, where she studied with Professor Jian Pei and helped develop fluorescent organic materials. She received her Ph.D. in chemistry from the University of Chicago in 2015, where she elucidated the cellular functions of RNA modifications with Professor Chuan He.
Ling-Ling Chen, Ph.D., carried out doctoral and post-doctoral work in Biomedical Science at UConn Health, USA with Gordon G. Carmichael from 2004 to 2010. She also completed an MBA degree in Management at the UConn Business School in 2009 and was promoted to Assistant Professor in Residence at UConn in 2010. Chen moved to the CAS Center for Excellence in Molecular Cell Science (also known as the Shanghai Institute of Biochemistry and Cell Biology), Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) as an independent PI in 2011. She was selected as a Howard Hughes Medical Institute (HHMI) International Research Scholar in 2017 and as a New Cornerstone Investigator in 2023.
Chen studies RNA biology with a particular focus on long noncoding RNAs (lncRNAs), a giant and varied class of new RNA molecules. Her group has developed methods for genome-wide discovery and characterization of non-polyadenylated RNAs. This work has led to the identification of novel RNA species including broadly expressed circular RNAs and sno-processed lncRNAs. Importantly, these RNAs have been implicated in gene regulation networks and in diseases. Her group now investigates the biogenesis of these RNAs and their mechanisms of action in human health and disease.
Chen serves the community as an advisory board member of many journals including Science, Cell, and Molecular Cell, and as an organizer of several international meetings including the Annual Meeting of the RNA Society, the CSHL Regulatory & Non-coding RNAs, the Keystone Noncoding RNAs and others. She is the recipient of the CBIS Young Investigator Award 2016, the L'Oréal China for Women in Science Award 2016, the Xplorer Prize 2020, the RNA Society Mid-Career Research Award 2021, and etc.
