Fan graduated from Fudan University in Shanghai with a B.Sc. in Biology. Afterwards she joined the lab of Prof. Dr. Mike Goshe at North Carolina State University and obtained her PhD in Biochemistry in 2013. Fan did her postdoc in the lab of Prof. Dr. Albert Heck (Utrecht, The Netherlands).
In 2017 Fan joined the Leibniz-Forschungsinstitut for Molecular Pharmacology (FMP) in Berlin as a group leader for Structural Interactomics and head of the proteomics research platform. In addition to her position at the FMP, Fan is jointly appointed as Professor for Structural Interactomics at Charité - Universitätsmedizin Berlin.
