Yichong Fan

Postdoctoral Research Associate

I am a protein chemist with expertise in molecular imaging tool development. Currently I am a postdoctoral research associate in bio-labs under the supervision of Hugh O'Neal. My main projects now are exploring the structure and function of lignocellulose, and how to incorporate fluorescence labeling as a complementary strategy to SANX/SAXS. Before joining ORNL, I was a postdoctoral research associate in University of Virginia from 2017 to 2018. I got PhD in Environmental Toxicology from University of California Riverside in 2017. In my spare time, you will probably find me playing with my son in MUSE museum and Zoo Knoxville with my son.
