Chung-Der Hsiao is Professor of Chung Yuan Christian University for Department of Bioscience Technology. He completed the undergraduate and graduate education in National Taiwan University. For postdoctoral training, he joined Dr. Pung-Pung Hwang's group at ICOB, Academia Sinica, and worked on fish physiology and bioinformatics. By 2007, Chung-Der was recruited by Chung Yuan Christian University and established his own laboratory, where he used the cutting-edge methods to generate many zebrafish disease models like apoptosis, obesity, skin cancer and aging. From 2012, Chung-Der was invited by GeneTex International Corp, Zgenebio Biotech and Taikong Corp as research consultant to initiate several cooperation projects on developing zebrafish antibodies, TALEN/CRISPR genome editing tools, transgenic fish as well as Next Generation Sequencing technologies. From 2019, Chung-Der was promoted as professor of Chung Yuan Christian University. Chung-Der is author of over 100 high impact journal articles. He is frequently invited to talk at international and local conferences across a diverse range of fields, and has also spoken to school, student and public audiences. His research has strong application potentials and several patents have been issued regarding to use zebrafish as a human disease models like aging, obesity and cancer.
