Jinghua Yu's Bio
Dr. Yu has been the Manager of NMR Facility and Crystallography Facility since May 2003. She received her Ph.D in physics/biophysics from Carnegie Mellon University, Pittsburgh, PA, and had Postdoc training at University of California San Francisco with Dr. Thomas James. She has a background in physics and biophysics, about 20 years experience in NMR spectroscopy and over 10 years in managing Crystallography Facility. She is responsible for the daily operations of the two facilities, including maintaining NMR spectrometers and X-ray diffraction equipment, scheduling NMR and X-ray instrument time, setting up NMR experiments for users, and troubleshooting hardware and software problems. She also provides consultation with investigators on the feasibility of NMR for structural studies of protein candidates, as well as the optimal methods to obtain solution structures and binding information by multi-dimensional NMR techniques. She has trained and helped many users in data acquisition, processing, and spectral analysis.
