CONGRATULATIONS to Professor Xing Chen on Receiving the 2022 Horace S. Isbell award!
Professor Xing Chen, Professor and Dean of the College of Chemistry and Molecular Engineering at Peking University, has received the 2022 Horace S. Isbell Award for excellence in and promise of continued quality of contribution to research in carbohydrate chemistry.
Prof. Chen received his bachelor’s degree in chemistry from Tsinghua University in 2002 before moving to University of California, Berkeley where he obtained his Ph.D. in 2007 under Prof. Carolyn Bertozzi and Prof. Alex Zettl. Following postdoctoral studies with Prof. Tim Springer at Harvard University, he began his independent career at Peking University in 2010 and was promoted directly to Full Professor in Prof. Chen’s research focuses on developing chemical tools to probe glycosylation in living organisms in a cell- and protein-specific manner.
His work has been recognized by numerous awards, including OKeanos-CAPA Senior Investigator Award at the Chemical and Biology Interface (2019), CCS-RSC Young Chemist Award (2018), ACS David Y. Gin New Investigator Award (2016), IGO Young Glycoscientist Award (2015), and National Science Fund for Distinguished Young Scholars (2014).
