Ling Chu (储 凌)

Ling was born and raised in Hefei, Anhui, China. He received a B.S. degree in Chemistry from the University of Science and Technology of China in 2012. He completed his Ph.D. study at the Scripps Research Institute, where he conducted research with Prof. Jin-Quan Yu on the development of Palladium-catalyzed C-H activation reactions. After completing his Ph.D. in 2017, he switched his research field to chemical biology and worked with Prof. Alanna Schepartz and Prof. Derek Toomre as a Brown-Coxe postdoctoral fellow at Yale School of Medicine. In the Schepartz/Toomre lab, he developed new chemical biology tools for two-color long-time lapse live-cell super-resolution imaging. He then joined Prof. Craig Crews’ lab in 2019 as a postdoctoral associate, where he led the development of first PROTAC capable of degrading oncogenic KRASG12C. Ling joined School of Pharmaceutical Sciences, Tsinghua University as an assistant professor in 2021. His research interest lies at the interface of chemistry and biology.
