Currently, I am in University of Connecticut for postdoctoral research. My mentor is Professor Li Wang.
Research in our laboratory is focused on several related areas centered on nuclear receptor regulation of chronic liver diseases. I am exploring the role of microRNA in the acute liver injury. My research interests cover hepatoxicity, genetic diseases, thyroid diseases, and lipotoxicity. My career goals are to continue pursuing excellence in the area of genetic diseases and endocrine disease, especially on the molecular diagnostic assessment on these diseases and, ultimately facilitate the translation of research findings to clinic outcomes in an effective and precise way.
