Shijie Ye was born in Shanghai, China. From 1999 to 2001, he studied human medicine at Shanghai 2nd. Medical University (now medical faculty of Shanghai Jiao-Tong University).
From 2002 to 2007, he studied Biochemistry at Freie Universität Berlin. He finished his diploma thesis and received the degree of “Diplom-Biochemiker” in 2007.
Since 2008 he worked as scientific coworker at Freie Universität Berlin. His research projects were focusing on protein engineering by incorporation of non-cognate amino acids into crucial site of protein. His research results lead to a series of crystal structures of protein complexes and a deeper insight into fluorine’s behavior at protein-protein interacting site. Apart from his research activities, he was also involved in various teaching practices. He finished his dissertation and obtained his doctoral degree in bioorganic chemistry/synthetic biology in 2014.
Beside his fundamental knowledge of biochemistry and cell and molecular biology, he is with full expertise in protein chemistry, from expression or chemical synthesis of proteins to protein crystal structural analysis.
He joined our office as patent attorney candidate in 2014 to carry out his training in intellectual property law.
He is a native Chinese speaker and fluent in English and German.
