Shyue-Fang Battaglia-Hsu received her undergraduate Pharmacy degree in Taiwan. After obtaining her PhD degree (School of Pharmacy) from the University of Wisconsin-Madison (UW), she joined the Department of Physiology in UW, participating in neuroscience research as an electrophysiologist to study neurosecretion from the pituitary glands as a post-doctoral fellow in the Laboratory of Dr. Meyer B. Jackson. She moved to Harvard Medical School in 1997 to study ion channels and their signaling with Dr. David E. Clapham. In 2000, she moved to France and worked in the Medical School of the University of Saarland (Homburg, Germany) to study the calcium-regulated secretion from pancreatic acinar cells in the laboratory Irene Schulz. Soon after that, she moved to Nancy (France) to study the molecular mechanisms of vitamin B12 in brain. She is now an Associate Professor in the University of Lorraine (Nancy, France). Her current research focuses on the role of metabolism in rare diseases, cancers and neurodegenerative diseases. Presently, she is a visiting faculty member in the Laboratory of Dr. Tsui-fen Chou in CalTech, learning the chemical biology technologies developed by Dr. Chou in the application of anti-cancer treatments.
