Personal profile


Dr. Yaping Chen received her PhD in Immunology from the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology and the School of Biomedical Sciences, Monash University, in 2017. Her PhD research has focused on the discovery of the molecular mechanisms regulating the differentiation and function of the specialized population of follicular T lymphocytes.

From June, 2017, Dr. Yaping Chen joined Prof. Nicolas Voelcker’s group in Monash Institute of Pharmaceutical Sciences at Monash University, working on developing novel, smart and functional nano-bio interfaces between nanoscale materials and mammalian cells. Her research interest, particularly in but not limited to T cell modification using nanotechnology, provides major opportunities for collaboration and commercialization in Bio-Nano technology, CAR-T cell immunotherapy, stem cell reprogramming and related disciplines.
