Eva Ge, Ph.D.

Assistant Professor

Eva received her BS in chemistry in 2013 from Cornell University, where she worked with Prof. Yimon Aye. She then moved to Princeton University for her PhD studies with Prof. Tom Muir, studying the biochemistry of the chromatin modifying complex PRC2. She joined the Chang lab in 2019 and is interested in the role of copper in biology. In her spare time, Eva enjoys live music and keeping up with current events.

Education & Training:

B.A. Chemistry and Chemical Biology, Cornell University

Ph.D. Chemistry, Princeton University

Postdoctoral Scholar, University of California Berkeley

Fields of interest: Bioinorganic chemistry, chemical biology, peptide and protein chemistry, enzymology

Research focus: The Ge group is interested in the chemistry and biology of modified proteins, specifically the crosstalk between covalent protein posttranslational modifications (PTMs) and metal binding, and how this crosstalk contributes to human health and the development of disease states such as cancer and neurodegeneration. Research will combine techniques in peptide and protein chemistry, biochemistry (including air-free), enzymology, and cell biology.
