Menghong Yan (Visiting Professor)
Joanne Garcia (BS/MS student)
I am currently a graduate student in the BS/MS Biotechnology program and also majored in Molecular Microbiology and Immunology. My research interests involve Proteomics and the emerging applications of liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry (LC-MS/MS). I joined Dr. Chen's lab to expand my knowledge of applying LC-MS/MS technology in the study RNA modifications.
Keep Calm and Grow Strong...
I am currently majoring in biology at the University of Nevada, Reno. My primary interests are in epigenetic research particularity the transfer of acquired hereditary illnesses. I joined Qi Chen Lab to expand my knowledge and skills on the rising subject of RNA-mediated epigenetic memory.
I am an undergraduate double majoring in biology and molecular microbiology and immunology (MMI) at the University of Nevada, Reno. My interest in genetics, as well as my previous experience assisting in stem cell laboratory research, led me to join Dr. Chen's lab in order to continue to expand my knowledge and experience in the dynamic field of epigenetic research.
Dongmei Tan (Visiting Professor)
I’m a visiting scholar from Chongqing Medical University. My research mainly focuses on the reproductive biology and laboratory animal science. I have been studying the mechanism of embryo implantation for the past years. I am also interested in the changes of RNA and RNA modifications in various tissues and organs during species evolution.

Shichao Liu, PhD (Postdoc)
I obtained my PhD degree in Developmental Biology from Northeast Agricultural University in China. I'm interested in cell fate commitment and lineage determination during mammalian early embryonic development. I joined Qi Chen Lab to further explore the molecular and mechanical mechanisms that guide early mouse embryo development and pattern formation
