Welcome to the Chien lab at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst in the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology.

We are an interdisciplinary lab focused on understanding regulated protein degradation and quality control using biochemistry, structural biology and cell biology. Our primary approach is to use both molecular and cellular techniques to understand the mechanisms that lead to specific substrate processing during basic cellular events. We draw from several fields, including Biochemistry[1] and Microbiology [2], and are always interested in enthusiastic students who are driven to understand fundamental biological questions. We are part of the MCB graduate program [3], the Chemistry-Biology Interface Program [4], and the Institute for Cellular Engineering [5] here at UMass. Please see the other links above for more detailed information, or feel free to email if you have questions that aren't addressed.
