Dr. Wenbo Chen

In July 2016 Wenbo obtained his master degree in Institute of Biophysics, Chinese Academy of Sciences, where he received preliminary training in the field of cryo-electron microscopy(cryo-EM). Afterwards Wenbo initiated his PhD study in Max-Planck-Institute of Biophysics and researched the structures of rabbit ryanodine receptor 1 (RyR1) in native membrane by cryo-EM, he will finish his PhD study in August 2020 and join the Dikic lab and Stolz group as postdoc researcher since September 2020. Wenbo will on one side carry out structural studies of important proteins involved in autophagy and ubiquitylation by cryo-EM in Dikic lab, on another side he will also start to work in a new field, which is the ER quality control group led by Dr. Alexandra Stolz.
