Dr. Qinglong You earned a B.S. in applied physics from Huazhong University of Science and Technology, and a Ph.D. in molecular biology and Bbiochemistry from the Institute of Biophysics of the Chinese Academy of Sciences. In his graduate work, Dr. You studied nucleosome binding proteins and mBend3 DNA complex with use of X-ray crystallography. Much of his laboratory work includes protein analysis and expression and crystal structure determination. In 2019, he joined the laboratory of Dr. Huilin Li at Van Andel Research Institute as a postdoctoral fellow.
The DNA damage repair process is very important for cells, and involves numerous proteins that recognize damaged DNA as part of the repair pathway. We are interested in complexes that play important roles in this pathway, and plan to use cryo-EM to investigate.
