Jia Chen

Dr. Jia Chen received his doctoral degree in 2009 from the Shanghai Institute of Biochemistry and Cell Biology, Chinese Academy of Sciences. Since November 2014, he has been working in the School of Life Science and Technology, ShanghaiTech University. His group focuses on DNA repair-induced mutagenesis, which underlines the precision of gene editing, the development of certain cancers and aging. They are particularly interested in: 1) Mechanism of DNA repair-induced mutagenesis in gene editing; 2) Development of novel gene editing tools; 3) New proteins and pathways involved in DNA repair-induced mutagenesis; 4) Role of DNA repair-induced mutagenesis in carcinogenesis.
