Dr. Ling-Ling Chen carried out the doctoral and post-doctoral work at the University of Connecticut Health Center, USA from 2004 and 2010. She has been the Principal Investigator at the Institute of Biochemistry and Cell Biology, Shanghai Institutes for Biological Sciences, Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) since 2011 and has selected as a distinguished faculty of CAS since 2016. Ling-Ling Chen’s group has identified different types of long noncoding RNA (lncRNA) species by developing methods to explore the non-polyadenylated transcriptomes. Her group now studies the biogenesis and potential function of these lncRNAs in different cellular contexts and in relevant human diseases.
