Hong-Lin Chan is the Head of the National Tsing Hua University, Taiwan, for Quantitative Proteomics Group and has 10 years of experience in proteomic method development and application. Dr. Chan received his Ph.D. degree from University College London in 2005. After 2-year postdoctoral training in the Wolfson Institute for Biomedical Sciences, he got the current Professorship from National Tsing Hua University in Taiwan. Dr. Chan’s group has expertise in the preparation, separation, and quantification of proteins and posttranslational modifications using mass spectrometry and other methods. Dr. Chan was one of the first users of 2D-DIGE technology which is routinely used for protein expression profiling, and the group has also established platforms which perform quantitative phosphoproteomics and redox-proteomics analysis. Dr. Chan’s group focused on serum biomarker discovery, characterising redox stress responses in cell models, mechanisms of cellular signalling, and proteomics-based studies on breast cancer, prostate cancer, and drug resistance formation. Methods include cell biology facilities, 2D-DIGE/MS, and quantitative 2D-LC-MS/MS expression profiling.
