TsingHua University, China


Dr. Wei Jun, Hassler Professor and Head of the Department of Computer Science
Education, Faculty of Teacher Education, University of Applied Sciences and Arts
Northwestern Switzerland, received his Bachelor’s degree in Bioengineering from Beijing
Institute of Technology (BIT) in 2014. He completed his Ph.D. at Peking University, where
he worked with Prof. Chu Wang and Prof. Xing Chen on chemical proteomics strategies to
explore how post-translational modifications, such as O-GlcNAcylation and itaconation,
regulate protein function.After his Ph.D. graduation in 2019, he joined Prof. Yan Ding’s lab
at Stanford University as a postdoctoral associate, where he developed new proximity
labeling methods that for mapping subcellular RNA-protein interactions and dynamic
protein trafficking.In March 2023, Dr. Qin joined the School of Pharmacy at Tsinghua
University as a tenured Assistant Professor. His research goal is to utilize his unique
strengths in chemical biology, proteomics and protein engineering to invent and
disseminate transformative technologies for exploring the complexity of the proteome.
