Chuan He, Ph.D., is the John T. Wilson Distinguished Service Professor in the Department of Chemistry, Director of the Institute for Biophysical Dynamics at the University of Chicago, and an Investigator of the Howard Hughes Medical Institute. He is also a Cheung Kong Professor and Director of Synthetic Functional Biomolecules Center (SFBC) at Peking University in China. His recent research concerns reversible RNA and DNA methylation in biological regulation. Chuan He’s laboratory has spearheaded development of enabling technologies to study the biology of 5-hydroxymethylcytosine (5hmC) in mammalian genomes. His laboratory also discovered the reversible methylation of N6-methyladenosine (m6A) in human messenger RNA (mRNA) in 2011.
