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 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.
Molecular systems are the foundations of life science, chemistry, and biomaterial development. I have broad interest in molecular design/programming and synthetic biology, particularly about the understanding of the biophysics of molecular interactions/folding (NAR 2020, ACS Nano 2017) and function mechanism under biological context, principles for molecular programming/design (JACS 2018, Angwandte Chemie 2016), and how to harness those de-novo designed molecules and molecular programmabilities to tackle the real world grand challenges in biology, biophysics, biomaterials, and information science (Cell 2020), through both experimental and computational approaches. I believe integrating the molecular programmability with biology will lead to lots of transformative research in the near future in many sub areas.
