I am now a postdoctoral fellow in Krannert institute of cardiology, Indiana University School of Medicine since 2014.
I completed my Ph.D. in Molecular and cellular biology at Nanjing University, working on an apoptotic protein FADD in skeletal muscle regeneration and ageing. In recent years, I has focused on epigenetic mechanisms involved in cardiac development and diseases, especially lncRNAs and miRNAs. With intensive experiences in cardiology field, I have been selected as an editorial member of Cardiology Journal and Current Research: Cardiology.
