Jing Yang, Ph.D.

Principal Investigator

National Center for Protein Sciences (The Phoenix Center, Beijing)


About myself: 

I was born in Changsha, a city in the Southern central region of China. Like most Changsha guys, I love spicy food. Previously I might have "an iron stomach" (quote from Dan Liebler, my postdoc adviser). In the past two years, it seems that my 'iron stomach' is getting 'rusty', though I still can live without chilli pepper. 

I love watching, not playing, football games. Bayern Munich is my only favorite football club. My idol is Oliver Kahn, the former goalkeeper of FCB.  


Caiping Tian

Research Associate

Email: 379510771ATqq.com

Caiping obtained the M.S. in Biotechnology at China Pharmaceutical University. Her adviser is Prof. Yueqing Gu. After graduation, she became the first member in my Lab, helping me set up the Lab. Her research in my Lab is focused on target identification of synthetic and naturally occurring electrophiles. She also help us identify a novel endogenous protein electrophilie, N-formyl protein degradants. Outside the Lab, she likes mountain climbing. As her quote from an ancient poetry, "Reaching the top, then you can hold all mountains in a single glance". 


Ling Fu, Ph.D.

Postdoctoral Fellow

Ling received her Ph.D. in Microbiology at Shanghai Jiaotong University under the guidance of Prof. Jun Xu. She joined my Lab as a postdoc in 2016. Since then, she has been working on mapping protein S-sulfenylation (-SOH) and S-sulfinylation (-SO2H) in various model organisms using state-of-the-art chemoproteomic technology. Outside the Lab, she enjoys a couple of things, including reading and photography. Her favorite pop singers include Jay Chou, Wei Xu, Taylor Swift and Maroon 5. She also likes to play badminton and basketball in her free time. BTW, She idolizes Kobe Bryant!


Keke Liu, Ph.D.

Assistant Investigator

Email: liukekeno1AT126.com

Keke obtained his Ph.D. in Microbiology, mentored by Prof.  Xingzhong Liu, at Institute of Microbiology, Chinese Academy of Sciences. He joined my Lab in 2016 after he finished a 2-year postdoc training in the brewery industry. He is interested in bioinformatics, the so-called 'dry' experiment, as compared with 'wet' experiments. He helps us to establish several informatics workflows, which greatly facilitates our capability for processing site-centric chemoproteomic data. In addition, he provides various bioinformatics solutions for the projects done or being done in my group.
