Ying Huang, PhD
Lab Manager Email: email@example.comLearn More
Ying Huang, PhD, received her PhD in zoology from the University of Hawaii at Manoa. After postdoctoral training at Case Western Reserve University, she joined the Chen Lab in February 2014. In addition to ensuring that the day-to-day operations of the Chen Lab are in order, she has been studying how syndecan-1 regulates exosome formation in the lung epithelium.
Lingyin Ge, PhD
Postdoctoral Fellow Email: firstname.lastname@example.orgLearn More
Lingyin Ge, PhD, obtained a PhD in molecular and cellular biology from Stony Brook University and has a medical degree in China. To further extend her interests in both basic and translational research in pulmonary diseases, she joined the Chen Lab in January 2014. She is working on understanding how changes in microRNA profile in bronchial epithelial cells from lung transplant patients contribute to the development of obliterative bronchiolitis (OB).
Rena Brauer, PhD
Postdoctoral Fellow Email: email@example.comLearn More
Rena Brauer, PhD, obtained her doctorate from Christian-Albrechts-Universität zu Kiel in 2011. She joined the Chen Laboratory in 2012 and has been working to understand how syndecan-1 regulates lung inflammation after influenza infection. Brauer moved with the Chen Lab to Cedars-Sinai in 2014 to study how syndecan-1 in the lung epithelium functions in innate immunity.
Tanyalak Parimon, MD

Jenieke Allen obtained her bachelor’s of science in biology and her master’s degree in cell and molecular biology from California State University, Northridge. Her area of study was in development biology, focusing on cell surface carbohydrates and their roles in cell adhesion during development using the sea urchin as a model organism. Allen joined the Chen Lab in November 2014 as a PhD student. Her thesis project involves investigating the contribution of TIMP-1 in lung injury and repair in response to pathogen lung injury.
