Warmest congratulations to Erik and Zhiguang for their paper on "Inner pore hydration free energy controls the activation of the big potassium channel and its mutants" being selected as one for the Best of 2023 published in Biophysical Journal!

Feb 9-14, 2024
Jian, Kairong, Shrishti and Jianhan attended the annual Biophysical Society meeting in the beautiful Philadelphia. We celebrated the Lunar Chinese New Year in the best chinese restaurant of the town, presented some of our exciting results, and enjoyed the beautiful city. We also reconnected with the Chen lab alumni Erik and Mahdieh, as well as our collaborators from WUSTL, Buffalo, ISU, KSU, USC, Copenhagen, Van Andel and others. It was an exciting and memorable meeting!

Jan 15 and Feb 2, 2024
The lab celebrated Yumeng's memorable four years in the lab together at Jianhan's house. Yumeng has demonstrated how much one could accomplish with extreme dedication to research excellence and tenacity in front of extraordinary challenges. We are all so proud of her and wish her the best in her next chapter of life and scientific careeer!

We missed Yumeng so much that she had to come back to the lab for two more weeks before eventually saying goodbye one last time after the Feburary lab research update.
