Hsueh‐Fen Juan received her B.S. and M.S. degrees in botany and Ph.D. degree in biochemical sciences from National Taiwan University (NTU), Taipei, Taiwan, in 1999. She worked as a Research Scientist at the Japan International Research Center for Agricultural Sciences, Tsukuba, Japan, during 2000‐2001, and as a Postdoc Research Fellow at the Institute of Biological Chemistry, Academia Sinica, Taipei, Taiwan, during 2001‐2002. She started her academic career at the Department of Chemical Engineering, National Taipei University of Technology, Taipei, Taiwan, as an Assistant Professor, and at the Department of Computer Science and Information Engineering, NTU, as an adjunct Assistant Professor, in 2002. She moved to NTU, in 2004, as an Assistant Professor at the Department of Life Science and the Institute of Molecular and Cellular Biology. She was promoted to be an Associate Professor in 2006 and Full Professor in 2009. Juan is currently working on cancer systems biology, integrating transcriptomics and proteomics and bioinformatics for biomarker and drug discovery. She has developed a number of novel methods to advance systems biology research and applied such approach for drug discovery and elucidating molecular mechanism of drug responses in cancer cells. She has published more than 75 journal papers and edited a scientific book entitled Systems Biology: Applications in Cancer‐Related Research (2012). She also serves as the Reviewer of 37 various journals like Drug Discovery Today, Molecular and Cellular Proteomics (ASBMB), Journal of Proteome Research (ACS), Proteomics (Wiley‐VCH), and Bioinformatics (Oxford) and has organized several international systems biology and bioinformatics symposiums. In 2008, she was awarded Taiwan’s Ten Outstanding Young Persons in Medical Research Field. In 2011, she received FY2011 JSPS Invitation Fellowship Program for Research in Japan. In 2012, she received K. T. Li Breakthrough Award from the Institute of Information and Computing Machinery.
