Hello, wellcome to my website. I'm Fan Hong (CV). Currently, I'm a postdoctoral fellow at Wyss Institute/Harvard University and work in the molecular system lab with Dr. Peng Yin. I was a graduate student in the Biodesign Institute at Arizona State University, and fortunate to work in the Yan Lab, Green Lab and Sulc Lab with Dr Hao Yan, Dr. Alexander Green, and Dr. Petr Sulc. My research is in a highly interdisciplinary area, but focusing on the molecular folding and design/programming across different scales.
Molecular systems are the foundations of life science, chemistry, and biomaterial development. I have broad interest in molecular design/programming and their implementation in biomedical areas such as synthetic biology and spatial biology, more specifically in three directions: (1) Understand the molecular folding and function in cellular context (NAR 2020); (2) Explore the design principle of molecular folding, dynamics, and self-assembly (JACS 2018, Angewandte Chemie 2017) in vivo and in vitro; (3) Implement the molecular programmability to tackle real world grand challenges in biology, biophysics, information science (Cell 2020) through both computational and experimental approaches. I believe integrating the molecular programmability with biology will lead to lots of transformative research in the near future in many sub areas.
