Wei Yan received his PhD in Biomolecular Chemistry in 1999 from University of Wisconsin-Madison (Mentor: Dr. Elizabeth Craig). He did his postdoctoral research at the Department of Microbiology at the University of Washington from 1999 to 2002. From 2002 to 2013 he joined Institute for Systems Biology (Seattle, USA) to practice Mass Spectrometry-based Proteomics with Dr. Ruedi Aebersold as a research scientist and Systems Biology with Dr. Leroy Hood as a senior research scientist. From 2013 he is a professor at Shanghai Center for Systems Biomedicine at Shanghai Jiao Tong University (Shanghai, China). His main research activities are in the field of Proteomics and Systems Biomedicine, focusing both on technology development of quantitative proteomics and system-based applications of such targeted proteomics technologies for translational medicine. He is actively working on research and development of disease-specific protein biomarkers for precision medicine practice in clinical diagnosis, prognosis, and therapeutic evaluation. From 2017 he serves as a senior scientific advisory member for the National Center for Translational Medicine of China (Shanghai), specializing in proteomics and metabolomics.
