Rong Fan, PhD

Dr. Rong Fan is Associate Professor of Biomedical Engineering at Yale University. He received a B.S. in Applied Chemistry from University of Science and Technology in China, a Ph.D. in Chemistry from the University of California at Berkeley, and then completed his postdoctoral training at California Institute of Technology, prior to launching his own research laboratory at Yale University in 2010. His current research interest is focused on developing single-cell microtechnologies to interrogate functional cellular heterogeneity and inter-cellular signaling network in human health and disease (e.g., cancer and autoimmunity). He developed a microchip technology that, for the first time, permits simultaneous measurement of 42 immune effector proteins in single cells, representing the highest multiplexing to date for a single-cell protein secretion assay. He is also working to develop high-throughput methods for co-analysis of single-cell epigenomic, transcriptomic, and proteomic profiles. Dr. Fan is co-founder and scientific advisor of IsoPlexis. He is also a member of Scientific Advisory Board (SAB) of Bio-Techne. He is the recipient of numerous awards including the National Cancer Institute’s Howard Temin Career Transition Award (K99/R00), the NSF CAREER Award, and the Packard Fellowship for Science and Engineering
