Profile

Fu-Sen was born in Taipei, Taiwan. After receiving his BS in Chemistry, he conducted MS research in natural product synthesis under the guidance of Dr. Tse-Lok Ho.

He then joined the Scripps Research Institute in La Jolla for PhD studies in Dr. Chi-Huey Wong's group where he designed and synthesized RNA-targeting small molecules and developed binding and specificity assays.

He did a postdoctoral research with Dr. Gerald Crabtree at Stanford Medical School where he investigated the functions of Brg chromatin remodeling complex and developed a new chemically induced proximity technique based on abscisic acid.

He moved to UNM at 2012 to start his independent research group. His research focuses on the development of novel chemical biology tools for biomedical research.
