Bingyun Sun received her B.A. in Chemistry from Fudan University, Shanghai, China and her Ph.D. in Bioanalytical Chemistry under the supervision of Professor Daniel T. Chiu at University of Washington. Subsequently, she pursued one-year postdoctoral training with Dr. Leroy Hood at Institute for Systems Biology, Seattle, Washington before being promoted to research scientist in Dr. Hood’s lab majoring in proteomics methodology development. In 2011, she was recruited to the current assistant professor position in Department of Chemistry, Simon Fraser University, Burnaby, British Columbia. Dr. Sun is also an associated member of Department of Molecular Biology and Biochemistry at Simon Fraser University. Her group develops innovative LC-MS based proteomics strategies to decipher structure and function of membrane proteins with an intense interest on stem cells. To study low abundance yet structurally complex membrane proteins, the group has been focusing on sensitive analysis that enriches membrane proteins and characterizes the ubiquitous N-glycosylation on membrane and secreted proteins. The nature of her research is a blend of analytical chemistry, biochemistry, material science, bioinformatics, and stem-cell glycobiology. She acts a supervising role in British Columbia Proteomics Network and is a principal investigator of Canada Stem-cell Network. Representative publications include Sun et al., PLoS One, 2013, Lee et al. Jove 2014, Sun et al. J. Proteome Res. 2013 and 2014.
