Christina Chan, is a Professor of Chemical Engineering, Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, and Computer Science and Engineering. Her lab focuses on understanding the signaling and regulatory mechanisms that are altered in diseases, such as obesity, Alzheimer’s disease, and cancer. Her group develops and applies metabolic engineering, bioinformatics, and systems biology approaches in combination with biochemical, biophysical, and molecular biology measurements and animal studies to identify targets and disease biomarkers. They are developing polymeric-based drug delivery and tissue engineering platforms to modulate pathways for treating these diseases.
