Ji-Kang Chen Joins the Gutmann Laboratory

Ji-Kang Chen, MS recently joined the research laboratory of NF Center Director, David H. Gutmann, MD, PhD, as a Research Technician. He completed his master’s degree at Taiwan National Yang-Ming University, where he studied how hippocampal nerve cell (neuron) work in the brain.

Bringing his expertise in neuron biology to the Gutmann laboratory, Ji-Kang is studying how Nf1 mutation changes the ability of brain and peripheral nerve neurons to control tumor formation and growth. We are delighted to have him spearhead this important project.
