Dr. Sunney Chan

Sunney Chan was born in San Francisco, CA, USA. He obtained

his B.S. in chemical engineering in 1957 and his Ph.D. in physical chemistry in 1960 from UC Berkeley. He did postdoctoral study in physics at Harvard University before joining the chemistry faculty at Caltech in 1963. After almost 40 years of teaching and research, he took early retirement from Caltech in 2002.

In 1997, Sunney started a second career at Academia Sinica, Taiwan, where he has served as Distinguished Research Fellow, Director of the Institute of Chemistry, and Vice President of Research. He is currently George Grant Hoag Professor of Biophysical Chemistry, Emeritus at Caltech; Distinguished Research Chair Professor of Chemistry at National Taiwan University and Honorary Chair Professor at the National Taiwan University of Science and Technology in Taiwan. Sunney’a research interests have spanned the gamut from molecular spectroscopy, physical biochemistry, bioinorganic chemistry, to the structure and function of membrane-bound proteins. He is especially noted for his work on metalloenzymes. He has received numerous honors in recognition of his scientific contributions, including election to Academia Sinica, TWAS (Academy of Sciences for the Developing World), and the American Academy of Arts and Sciences.


Dr. Andrew Yeh

Andrew Yeh was born in Syracuse, NY, USA. He obtained his B.A. in biology and chemistry from Cornell University, his Ph.D. in chemistry from Caltech, and afterward did postdoctoral research at the University of Colorado - Boulder. Andrew was a member of a protein structural genomics consortium performing structural biology research at the SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory and most recently has worked in the pharmaceutical industry doing structure-based anti-viral drug discovery research.
