Dr. Chuo Chen received his B.S. degree in Chemistry from National Taiwan University in 1995 and his Ph.D. degree in Chemistry from Harvard University in 2001, directed by famous American chemist Matthew D. Shair professor. During 2001-2004, he pursed his Postdoctoral Research Fellow degree at Harvard University, Howard Hughes Medical Institutein. In 2004, he joined the Southwestern Medical Foundation Scholar in Biomedical Research Division of Chemistry, Department of Biochemistry, University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center at Dallas as an Associate Professor. The goals of his research program are to develop new strategies and methods to facilitate the chemical synthesis of small molecules, and use these small molecules to help advance our understanding of cancer biology. They are focusing on (1) the target-oriented synthesis of structurally unique and biologically significant natural products, and (2) the function-oriented synthesis of small-molecule inhibitors of the Hedgehog (Hh) and Wnt signal transduction pathways.
