Congratulations to Yixuan (Axe) Xie for being selected for the 2022 Elson Fellowship in honor of Dr. Elliot Elson
Yixuan (Axe) Xie, Ph.D., is a postdoctoral research associate in the laboratory of Dr. Benjamin Garcia, where he focused on developing MS-based methods to characterize protein and RNA modifications for understanding their biological roles. He is also interested in investigating the interactions network involved in glycoproteins. He obtained his Ph.D. at the University of California, Davis, under the mentorship of Dr. Carlito Lebrilla. During his Ph.D., he established bioorthogonal tools to investigate the glycan-mediated interactions on the cell surface, as well as glycoproteomic and glycomic methods to monitor the cell glycosylation state during significant biological events.
