-Dr. Hsueh-Fen Juan was born in 1969, Miao-Li, Taiwan. She received her BS and MS degree in Botany and PhD in Biochemical Sciences from National Taiwan University (NTU) in 1999. She worked as a research scientist in the Japan International Research Center for Agricultural Sciences (Tsukuba, Japan) during 2000-2001 and a postdoctoral research fellow in the Institute of Biological Chemistry, Academia Sinica (Taipei, Taiwan) during 2001-2002. She started her academic career in the Department of Chemical Engineering,​ National Taipei University of Technology as an assistant professor and in the Department of Computer Science and Information Engineering at NTU as an adjunct assistant professor in 2002. She moved to NTU in 2004 as an assistant professor in the Department of Life Science and the Institute of Molecular and Cellular Biology. She was promoted to be the associate professor in 2006 and full professor in 2009 in the Department of Life Science, Institute of Molecular and Cellular Biology and Graduate Institute of Biomedical Electronics and Bioinformatics,​ NTU. Dr. Juan studied synthetic biology with Professor Hirotada Mori (NIST, Japan) in 2006 and Dr. James C. Liao (UCLA, USA) during 2007-2008. She is currently working on synthetic biology and systems biology by integrating genomics, transcriptomics,​ proteomics and bioinformatics for molecular signaling as well as biomarker and drug discovery.+**Hsueh-Fen Juan** was born in 1969, Miao-Li, Taiwan.

-===== Professor =====+Prof. Juan has developed a number of novel methods to advance systems-biology research and applied such an approach for drug discovery and elucidating molecular mechanisms of drug responses in cancer cells. She has published more than 120 journal papers including prestigious journals such as //Proc. Natl. Acad. Sci. U S A//, //​Bioinformatics//,​ //Briefings in Bioinformatics//,​ //Clinical Cancer Research//, //Cancer Res.//, //Nucleic Acids Res// and //Advanced Science//. Among these publications,​ Prof. Juan has breakthrough research achievement in targeting ectopic ATP synthase for cancer therapy, therefore Science Daily & American Chemical Society weekly news reported these results; additionally,​ she has two papers selected as ESI highly cited papers in 2013. She edited two scientific books entitled //Systems Biology: Applications in cancer-related research// (2012) and //A Practical Guide to Cancer Systems Biology// (2018). She is now the editor of //​Scientific Reports// (Nature Research), and //PeerJ//. She also serves as the reviewer more than 50 various journals including //Nature Communications//​ and //Gut//. 
 + 
 +To promote systems biology field, she has organized several international systems biology and bioinformatics symposiums. She is one of the founders of Center for Systems Biology and Bioinformatics (NTU), and currently the Council Member of four societies, Taiwan Bioinformatics and Systems Biology Society, Taiwan Proteomics Society, Taiwan Society of Evolution and Computational Biology, and Taiwan Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology. Since Dr. Juan made significant contributions through systems biology approach to development of methodology and cancer therapy; she received several awards “Taiwan'​s Ten Outstanding Young Persons” (2008), FY2011 JSPS Invitation Fellowship Program for Research in Japan (2011), K. T. Li Breakthrough Award by Institute of Information and Computing Machinery (2012), and National Science Council (NSC) Award for Special Talents of the Colleges (2010-2015, 2017-2018), NTU Academic Performance Reward (2015-2018),​ 2015 USA Emerging Information and Technology Association (EITA) Service Award, and Ministry of Science and Technology (MOST) Outstanding Research Award (2020). Additionally,​ she has been invited to give more than 160 talks worldwide and led her team members to obtain more than 80 research awards.
