Zi Chen is one of eight new fellows selected for the Society in Science - Branco Weiss Fellowship, a program of ETH Zurich (Swiss Federal Institute of Technology Zurich) to support outstanding junior scientists.
Chen was born in China and currently works with Professor Larry Taber in the Department of Biomedical Engineering at Washigton University in St. Louis. He received his PhD in Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering at Princeton University.
As a Branco Weiss fellow, he will investigate how one-dimensional information coded in DNA translates into three-dimensional shapes. Understanding these mechanisms will facilitate biomedical research and inspire novel design principles for programmable nanofabrication techniques and bio-mimetic devices.
