Founder and CEO

Dr. Chao-Yuh Yang, one of the foremost experts in the area of human plasma lipoproteins and apolipoproteins, is the current Chief Executive Officer of Academy Bio-Medical Company. Previously, he was the Scientific and Technical Director of Academy Bio-Medical Company.  Dr. Yang has over 40 years of experience in protein chemistry research, including 30 years of direct research experience in the field of lipoproteins and apolipoproteins. As a scientist in the Department of Immunochemistry, Max-Planck Institute for Experimental Medicine, Germany, he specialized in the structure of immunoglobulin IgA, IgG, and Histocompatibility Antigens HLA. For almost 3 decades, Dr. Yang was a member of the faculty at the Baylor College of Medicine in Houston, Texas, and he remains Professor Emeritus in Baylor’s Department of Medicine.  

Dr. Yang's long-standing research interest has focused on the role of low density lipoproteins (LDLs) in atherosclerosis. His expertise is in the area of plasma oxidized LDL, structure-function relationships of human plasma lipoproteins and apolipoproteins, and their lipid-related enzymes. He played a key role in the determination of the complete Apo B-100 amino acid sequence (Yang et al., Nature 1986). Dr. Yang has authored over 100 peer-reviewed scientific articles in his field and has been invited to deliver presentations at numerous national and international conferences. He received his Ph.D. in organic chemistry from Georg-August University in Göttingen, Germany.

This is based on its trypsin releasability, disulfide, and sulhydryl information. The locations of the 16 identified N-glycosylated carbohydrates are indicated by (○), cysteine residues are indicated by (●), and disulfide bridges are indicated by (=).
