Xiaojuan Fan, Ph.D., majored in computational biology at the Chinese Academy of Sciences-German Max Planck Society (CAS-MPG) Partner Institute for Computational Biology. Her doctoral studies focused on non-canonical translation and its biological roles in stress response. 

Dr. Fan is a member of Dr. Hafner’s group in the NIAMS. Her research focuses on RNA location. She is curious about how spatiotemporal dynamics regulate gene expression.
