Yi Charlie Chen

Professor of Biology

(304) 457-6246

Dr. Yi Charlie Chen, professor of biology, has taught at Alderson Broaddus University since 2000. He received his Bachelor of Science and Master of Science degrees from Zhejiang University in China. He then received his second Master of Science degree and a Doctoral degree from Washington State University. Prior to coming to ABU, Dr. Chen worked as postdoctoral fellow at USDA and Oklahoma State University.

Dr. Chen has published over 70 different papers and book chapters in a wide range of scientific journals and books. In collaboration with professors at West Virginia University and Marshall University, Dr. Chen is currently working on molecular biology of cancer research. His research has focused on the inhibition of anti-cancer drugs, especially natural compounds, on angiogenesis: the growth of blood vessels that provide nutrients to cancer cells and are essential for tumor growth. The natural compounds Dr. Chen is currently studying include saponins, kaempferol, theaflavin, nobiletin, baicalin, baicalein, gallic acid, galangin, myricetin, and chaetoglobosin K etc. from plants and fungi. Dr. Chen is also working on nanochemopreventionusing nanoparticles as a novel approach for cancer control. His group is currently studying the use of the nanotechnology to specifically target cancer cells using natural compounds. Together with scientists in USDA, Oklahoma State University and Washington State University, Dr. Chen also worked on developing DNA markers for detecting parasitism and predation. Dr. Chen has received several major grants over one million dollars from the National Institute of Health (NIH) and WV-INBRE, National Science Foundation (NSF) and WV-EPSCoR, Washington State Fruit Tree Commission, and USDA for scientific research. One of the grant Dr. Chen received in the amount of $500,000, it is the largest grant ever awarded to Alderson Broaddus for research.

Dr. Chen has also been nominated for the West Virginia Professor of the Year Award, a statewide award that honors the best teachers in West Virginia higher education. Dr. Chen is the recipient of the Faculty of the Year Award in 2013 selected by Alderson Broaddus students. Dr. Chen was the speaker for the 2013 ABU’s Opening Convocation. He was also the featured professor in the 2013 spring issue of the Neuron: West Virginia Journal of Science and Research. Dr. Chen has been selected as the plenary speaker, keynote speaker, moderator, and session chair in different scientific conferences.

Dr. Chen is currently serving as the Editor-in-Chief for a scientific journal: Journal of Nutritional Medicine and Diet Care. He also served as the Editor-in-Chief for The Open Entomology Journal between 2012-2015. He also serves as the Editorial Board Member for several scientific journals: Journal of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Research, Journal of Nutritional Medicine and Diet Care, SM Journal of Environmental Toxicology, Austin journal of cancer and clinical research, and International Archives of Clinical Pharmacology. Dr. Chen also currently serves on the steering committee of West Virginia IDeA Network of Biomedical Research Excellence (WV-INBRE) and the Science Advisory Board.

Dr. Chen’s courses include: microbiology, genetics, evolution, research methods, parasitology, immunology, cell biology, and conservation biology. He has also engaged in global study in China regarding issues in sciences and cell biology.

Everybody here is so friendly and ready to help.

My favorite spot on campus is:
The Quad between Burbick Hall and the Hamer Student Center. It’s always full of students either rushing on their way or having fun with all sorts of activities.

My best piece of advice to a student in the college search process is:
My job is to help International Students get through the maze of regulations and feel comfortable at a school sometimes half way around the world. My advice is for International Students to decide early and get documents completed several months before your embassy appointment.

My favorite meal in the dining hall is:
The salad bar is always fresh and nutritious…but I like the pizza, too.
