Dr. Baiyi Quan
STAFF SCIENTIST AT PEL
B.S., Peking University; Ph.D., Duke University
Baiyi got his Bachelor's in chemical biology from Peking University under the supervision of Prof. Chu Wang, where he was introduced to the world of chemoproteomics and mass spectrometry. He then decided to pursue a Ph.D. degree at Duke University under the supervision of Prof. Michael Fitzgerald. In Fitzgerald lab, Baiyi works on utilizing one or multiple protein stability profiling techniques, including Stability of Proteins from Rates of Oxidation (SPROX), Thermal Proteome Profiling (TPP), and Limited Proteolysis (LiP), to identify protein targets of bioactive small molecules and biomarkers. After his graduation from Duke, Baiyi joined PEL in 2022 as a staff scientist. Baiyi has a broad interest in various proteomic techniques, including developing novel techniques and utilizing and implementing existing techniques to address important biological problems. Out of the lab, Baiyi enjoys his seemingly boring but actually inspiring everyday life.
