DR Shenggen Yao


  • Nuclear Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy and Imaging (protein structure, dynamics, and interaction; molecular diffusion by NMR)



  • Dr Shenggen Yao obtained his PhD at The University of New South Wales, Sydney, in 1995 under the supervision of Professor JM Pope (thesis title: Nuclear magnetic resonance flow micro-imaging: with applications to studies of membrane filtration modules). Through subsequent employments at Biomolecular Research Institute (Melbourne), Howard Florey Institute, Walter and Eliza Hall Institute, and University of Melbourne (Bio21 Institute), Dr Yao has participated in many research projects across multiple disciplines involving the use of Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR). Dr Yao has co-authored over 60 papers in peer-reviewed scientific journals covering both NMR spectroscopy and imaging since the beginning of his PhD at UNSW.
