Research Assistant Professor |School of Life Sciences, Academy for Advanced Interdisciplinary Studies
Dr. Fengfeng Niu, as a Research Assistant Professor (RAP), currently works
at Academy for Advanced Interdisciplinary Studies/Biology Department, SUSTech
He got his Ph.D (major in Structural Biology) at Institute of Biophysics, Chinese Academy of Sciences in 2015 and then moved to Department of Biology, SUSTech and started his post-doc and RAP fellow research.
He focuses on structural and bio-functional study on the key biomacromolecules in human/pathogens by employing X-ray, Cryo-EM methods combining with biochemical and cellular assay. Recently, he mainly works on the mechanism investigation on intracellular cargo transport mediated by molecular motors. His main work has been published in Science Advances, PNAS, Journal of Virology and Protein Cell.
1. Structural study on the key proteins/protein complexes by employing X-ray crystallography and CryoEM methods.
2. Mechnism investigation on intracellular cargo transport mediated by molecular motors.
