About the PNAS Member Editor
Name Cheng, Yifan
Location University of California, San Francisco
Primary Field Biophysics and Computational Biology
Secondary Field Biochemistry
 Research Interests
Yifan Cheng's laboratory uses cryo-electron microscopy (cryo-EM) to study structures of biological macromolecules, particularly integral membrane proteins and dynamic complexes. In addition, development of cryo-EM methodology for structural biology is also a long-lasting interest of his laboratory. Areas of previous works include development of algorithms to correct electron beam-induced blurring of cryo-EM images, improving quality and throughput of cryo-EM data acquisitions, structure determinations of TRP channels, and dynamic behavior of channel gating by endogenous and exogeneous physical and chemical stimuli, etc.
