Dr. Chaoping Chen received her BS in Biochemistry at Nanjing University, Nanjing, P. R. China and later MS in Genetics at Institute of Microbiology, Chinese Academy of Sciences, Beijing, P. R. China. She then taught courses in human genetics and mammalian cell biology at Capital Medical University, Beijing, P. R. China for a few years before came to the US to pursuit her Ph.D. in Microbiology at Purdue University, West Lafeyette, Indiana. After a postdoctoral fellowship at the University of Pittsburgh Medical School, she joined the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology at Colorado State University in Fort Collins, Colorado. Dr. Chen’s research team focuses on understanding HIV protease autoprocessing mechanism and novel antiretroviral discovery targeting this unique step. She has taught undergraduate level courses including BC192 – Biochemistry Freshman Seminar, LIFE 210 – Introductory Eukaryotic Cell Biology, BC465 – Molecular Regulation of Cellular Function, along with graduate level courses such as BC565 – (Advanced) Molecular Regulation of Cellular Function, BC665 – Advanced Topics in Cellular Regulation, BC601 – Responsible Conduct of Research in Biochemistry.
