[Biography]
Dr. Elsa Yan joined Yale University as an Assistant Professor of Chemistry in 2007 and was promoted to Associate Professor in 2012 and full professor in 2014. Her expertise encompasses biomolecular interactions at interfaces, signal transduction across biomembranes and molecular mechanism of vision. She developed the Chiral Sum Frequency Generation Spectroscopy to probe protein secondary structures at interfaces in situ and in real time. As a tribute to her contributions to Chemistry, she was awarded Individual National Research Service Award, NSF CAREER Award, and Early Excellent in Physical Organic Chemistry. She is the elected chair of the Gordon Research Conference on Vibrational Spectroscopy. Since 2016, she has been an Editor of Biophysical Journal.
