Ting-Sung Hsieh, Ph.D.

Postdoctoral fellow

Picture of Ting-Sung Hsieh, Ph.D.

Ting-Sung received his B.S. degree in biology/math and M.S. degree in biochemistry from National Taiwan University, Taiwan, and he did his Ph.D. work in the Jen Liou Lab at UTSW. Along the path, Ting-Sung used in vitro reconstitution and fluorescence imaging to study prokaryotic cytoskeletons and used super-resolution imaging to study autophagy and membrane contacts. Ting-Sung currently uses advanced imaging techniques together with biophysical approaches to study how pathogenic bacteria subvert the host endomembrane system via secreted lipid kinases and phosphatases.

Apart from science, Ting-Sung is an outdoor enthusiast. He has hiked 800+ miles in the U.S. national parks since he came to the U.S. One of the most recent highlights is that he did sea kayaking to the Mokes (Mokulua Islands) on Oahu's windward side.
