Dr. Yan, Chen received her Bachelor and Master degrees in the field of Biochemistry and Genetics, respectively, from Fudan University, Shanghai, China. She completed her PhD. In Pharmacology at University of Washington in Seattle, USA. Currently, she is a tenured professor in the Cardiovascular Research Institute, University of Rochester School of Medicine and Dentistry, Rochester, USA. Dr. YAN has established a well- recognized and well- funded research program in the area of cyclic nucleotide signaling and cardiovascular biology by focusing on a family of enzymes called phosphodiesterases (PDE) that degrade cyclic nucleotides (cAMP and cGMP). The ongoing studies in Dr. YAN′s lab using in vitro and in vivo approaches have been focused on elucidating the roles and underlying mechanisms of PDE activation or inhibition in various cardiovascular diseases. To date, she has more than 130 SCI publications in a number of prestigious journals such as PNAS, Circulation and Circulation Research, etc. She serves on the editorial board of several journals such as Arterioscletosis, Thrombosis, and Vascular Biology (ATVB) and Journal of Molecular and Cellular Cardiology (JMCC), as well as serves as an ad hoc reviewer for NIH Study Section and many other cardiovascular-related journals. She was a recipient of American Heart Association Established Investigator Award.
