Prof. Ying Ge
Dr. Ying Ge is a Professor in the Department of Cell and Regenerative Biology and Department of Chemistry at University of Wisconsin-Madison. She received a B.S. from Peking University and a Ph.D. from Cornell University under the joint supervision of Prof. Fred McLafferty and Prof. Tadhg Begley. After graduate school, Dr. Ge explored a career in pharmaceutical industry. In 2012, Dr. Ge started her tenure-track Assistant Professor position, received tenure in 2015, and was promoted to Full Professor in 2019. Ge’s research is highly interdisciplinary that cuts across the traditional boundaries of chemistry, biology, and medicine. It is her belief that to make significant impact in molecular medicine, it is necessary to combine technology with function and bridge the silos between basic and translational/clinical research for precision medicine. Dr. Ge has devoted her past twenty years to developing and applying top-down mass spectrometry-based proteomics to biomedical research. Recently her lab has developed a multi-pronged approach to address the challenges in top-down proteomics. Dr. Ge has published over 150 papers with many in high impact journals. She has received a number of awards such as the ASMS Biemann Medal (2020), HUPO Clinical and Translational Proteomics Award (2021), and HPLC Society Georges Guiochon Faculty Fellowship (2016), as well as The Top 100 Analytical Scientist Power List (on a global scale, 2019, 2020 2021). Dr. Ge is passionate about education and has been mentoring students from chemistry, biology and medicine.
