Shu-Bing Qian is a biochemist at Cornell University where he is the James Jamison Professor of Molecular Nutrition. He received his PhD degree in biochemistry from Shanghai Jiaotong University School of Medicine in China and conducted postdoctoral studies at National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Disease and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. At Cornell, Dr. Qian discovered stress-induced ribosome pausing and his laboratory was one of the first to profile initiating ribosomes on a transcriptome-wide scale from cells in culture to tissues in vivo. In addition to translational control of gene expression, Dr. Qian’s research interests include RNA modification, degradation, and quality control in both cytosol and nucleus. Dr. Qian was a recipient of 2009 NIH Director’s New Innovator Award, is a faculty scholar at Howard Hughes Medical Institute, and a recipient of 2020 NIH Director’s Pioneer Award.
