Dr. Chue provides consulting services in the scientific and regulatory aspects of a wide range of medical devices and biologics with particular emphasis on rapid detection of pathogenic organisms. Dr. Chue's background is particularly useful to clients with biomedical products where expertise in biodefense issues is required.

Dr. Chue has been involved in the biodefense sector since 1996, and specializes in molecular pathogenesis and rapid environmental detection of pathogenic agents. A graduate of Stuyvesant High School in New York City, he received his undergraduate degree from the Johns Hopkins University and completed his doctoral research at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health under the mentorship of Dr. Diane E. Griffin. Dr. Chue currently holds an adjunct faculty appointment at the Johns Hopkins University Advanced Academic Programs, where he teaches "Biological and Chemical Threat Response and Forensics." He is also a participant in UMUC's newly minted Mentoring Program.

Since 2007, Dr. Chue has worked at the National Biodefense Analysis and Countermeasures Center (NBACC) as a principal investigator in both the National BioForensic Analysis Center, where he focuses on pushing the boundaries of molecular detection techniques, and the National BioThreat Characterization Center, where he focuses on public health, emerging disease and emerging technologies. In addition, he serves as the NBACC Educational Coordinator for the Internship, Mentoring and Post-doctoral fellow programs.

Dr. Chue's experience at multiple levels (from technician to PI) in several biodefense organizations (BDRD, USAMRIID, ECBC), combined with industry and academic positions, provides a broad perspective of the biodefense field.
