Jie received a BS degree in biology from Jilin University, China in 2010, then joined the lab of Dr. Maojun Yang in the Center for Structural Biology at Tsinghua University. In her graduate research, she mainly focused on the underlying mechanism for substrate specificity of amino acid ABC transporters using X-ray crystallography. After receiving her . degree in the summer of 2015, Jie joined the Gouaux Lab in early 2016 and is currently investigating the structural and functional properties of the key proteins in the development of chronic myelogenous leukemia, combining X-ray crystallography and electron microscopy.
