Yajun Yan got his Bachelor’s degree (1999) and Master’s degree (2002) in Biochemical Engineering at Beijing University of Chemical Technology. In 2008, he got his Ph.D. degree at the State University of New York at Buffalo in the Department of Chemical and Biological Engineering. During this period, his research focus was metabolic engineering. From 2008-2010, he did his postdoctoral research at the University of California, Los Angeles with further training in metabolic engineering and synthetic biology. In 2010, Dr. Yan joined the University of Georgia as an assistant professor of Biochemical Engineering and was promoted to associate professor with tenure in 2015. His current research interests are metabolic engineering and synthetic biology with applications in developing enzymatic and microbial approaches for the production of pharmaceutically important compounds as well as renewable fuels and chemicals.
