Yun Chen

Yun Chen is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Mechanical Engineering. Yun completed her PhD in Biomedical Engineering at the University of North Carolina where her research focused on tracking molecular movements in cells by single particle tracking with fast-sampling high-resolution microscopy. Now, Yun’s research efforts focus on studying how biophysical and biochemical factors are coordinated to achieve homeostasis or facilitate pathogenesis across molecular, cellular and tissue levels. Physical parameters such as diffusion rate, fluid viscosity, tissue rigidity, electric surface charges, etc., in tumor microenvironment can be probed with the multi-scale, multi-modality imaging platform and subsequently assessed for their contribution in early cancer development.
