I am originally from Guangzhou, China. I went to the University of Minnesota, Twin Cities for my Bachelor’s degree and majored in Chemical Engineering in 2009. Then I moved to the University of Florida to pursue my Ph.D. degree in Chemical Engineering and I graduated in 2018. I am currently a postdoc in Dr. Truskey’s lab at Duke and my research interests majorly focus on threes aspects: 1. testing novel approaches to differentiation iPSCs to endothelial cells; 2. finding out how preexisting adaptive immunity to Cas9 proteins could affect CRISPR-Cas9 based gene therapies in human muscular dystrophy, and 3. Identifying how abnormal cellular and nuclear force distributions could contribute to cell or tissue dysfunctions in Hutchison Gilford Progeria Syndrome.
