Personal Information

Chen Chao, Ph.D., joined Central South University as an associate professor in 2014, and full professor in 2019. He was promoted as deputy dean of School of Life Sciences in 2019. He is a member of the Chinese Medical Association Youth Committee, American Society of Human Genetics, International Society of Psychiatric Genetics.
He won the honor of Presentation Award on Society of Biological Psychiatry 67th Annual Scientific Meeting (Philadelphia, PA 2012), Hugh Gurling Award on World Congress of Psychiatry Genetics (Jerusalem, Israel 2016), the winner of Travel Award, the 13th International Congress of Human Genetics (Tokyo, Japan 2016), and the winner of Travel Award, the 13th International Congress of Human Genetics (Miami, FL 2016).
He conducted a number of research projects on genetic regulation on human brain and neuropsychiatric diseases, such as “The roles of long non-coding RNA on schizophrenia” (2015), “The genetic regulation on Chinese brains and investigation on psychiatry diseases in China” (2016), “The pathogenesis and risk factors of Parkinson's disease” (the National Key Plan for Scientific Research and Development of China, 2016).
He has published more than 30 articles on Science, Science Translational Medicine, Molecular Psychiatry, Bioinformatics, etc. Many papers have been cited over 100 times.

Described by his supervisor Elliot Gershon, former director of the National Institute of Mental Health, “super student… done a lot of bioinformatics and statistical analyses… very self-motivated and doesn’t require a lot of supervision.”

Today’s biologists are confronted with a flood of data, a fire-hose torrent of genetic and clinical information that only builds with the spread of fast sequencing and electronic medical records. Dr. Chen tries to establish new methods to translate that data bounty into practical knowledge that can revolutionize science and medicine. Dr. Chen's research focuses on integrating diverse data (e.g. genetic, epigenetic, transcriptomic, proteomic data and etc.) into graphic networks, and analyzing next-generation sequencing data for elucidating complex mechanisms of psychiatric disorders, which include 1) method development in integrating diverse high-throughput data into high-dimensional/probabilistic causal network models; 2) QTL studies of epigenetic traits in human brain; 3) method development to interpret microarray and next-generation sequencing data. The results will create novel hypotheses that could alter how experts define and treat neuropsychiatric disorders, to be tested by Dr. Chen and his colleagues from Central South University.
