Yi Shi, Ph.D.
Assistant Professor at University of Pittsburgh, School of Medicine


Dr. Yi Shi is an Assistant Professor from the department of Cell Biology at University of Pittsburgh. The Shi lab is interested in the development of cutting-edge mass spectrometry-based proteomics technologies for the analysis of biomolecules and macromolecular assemblies. Recently, fascinated by the exciting biomedical potentials of camelid nanobodies, we have begun to develop methods and informatics to revolutionize the discovery and characterization of nanobodies.  In parallel, we are harnessing these tools and the potent biomolecules that we discovered to enable biomedical applications, disease diagnosis, and treatment, especially infectious diseases. The lab is also interested in understanding the detailed mechanisms underlying antigen-nanobody interactions.
