Song Tan is Professor of Biochemistry & Molecular Biology at Penn State University in the U.S..  He studied physics as an undergraduate at Cornell University (1985) before pursuing his PhD at the MRC Laboratory of Molecular Biology (1989).  He continued his training as postdoctoral fellow and project leader under Tim Richmond at the ETH-Zürich (Swiss Federal Institute of Technology) where he determined crystal structures of transcription factor/DNA complexes.  Dr. Tan joined the Penn State Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology in 1998.  Dr. Tan’s laboratory investigates how chromatin enzymes and factors interact with their nucleosome substrates through biochemical and structural approaches.  His laboratory determined the first chromatin factor-nucleosome crystal structure (RCC1-nucleosome) in 2010 and the first chromatin enzyme-nucleosome crystal structure (PRC1-nucleosome) in 2014.  He recently spent a year on sabbatical at the MRC LMB to learn cryoEM.
