Mei Hong, Professor and the first John D. Corbett Professor of Chemistry, received her B.A. in 1992 from Mount Holyoke College and her Ph.D. in 1996 from the University of California at Berkeley. Following a one-year stint as an NIH postdoctoral fellow at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, she became a research professor at the University of Massachusetts at Amherst. In 1999, she joined the faculty at Iowa State University. Her research centers on the development and application of solid-state NMR spectroscopy to investigate the structure and dynamics of membrane proteins, fibrous proteins and carbohydrates. She has served on the organizing committees of a number of NMR meetings, and is currently on the editorial boards of the Journal of Magnetic Resonance and the Biophysical Journal.
