Dr. Yuying Gosser (Biosketch)

Dr. Yuying Gosser earned her Doctorate in Physical Chemistry from Brown University, Providence, RI.  She studied Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) Spectroscopy and did research on multi-dimensional hetero-nuclear NMR for protein structure determination in Yale University and Rockefeller University and appointed as an associate research scientist in Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center. Her work on protein structure and peptide-RNA interaction were published on Nature and Nature Molecular Structural Biology, respectively.

She joined the City College of New York in 2002, was the founding director of the NSF sponsored Pathways Bioinformatics Center and the HHMI sponsored Gateway Laboratory for undergraduate research training in Structural Biology in the Science Division. As a member of HHMI supported national Genomics Education Partnership (www.GEP.wustl.edu), she developed the computer-lab based research-oriented course of Genomics and Bioinformatics.  Since 2008 she has been the Director of Student Research and Scholarship at the Grove School of Engineering and the Executive Editor of the Journal of Student Research (www.ccnyosrs.org).

Dr. Yuying Gosser’s initiative and dedication in helping engineering students pursue research internship and graduate study was appreciated by all students and faculty. She received the CCNY President’s S.T.A.R. Award 2015 (S.T.A.R: Service, Teamwork, Action, and Results). Her expertise in STEM education has also been recognized at national level. She was invited by American Society for Engineering Education (ASEE.org) to review the papers on First year programs for ASEE 2016 Conference. From 2014 to 2016, she served on NSF Graduate Research Fellowship Program (NSFGRFP.org) Review Panel (Biochemistry and Structural Biology group) to evaluate the applications for the NSFGRFP award  2015 and 2016.
