Professional Summary:

I am interested in all aspects in general surgical pathology with major focus on medical renal and genitourinary pathology. I also have special interest in immunology and molecular pathology. Due to my previous long years research training, I would like to continue the endeavor in research directed to address clinical related questions and disease mechanisms.

  • Residency, Pathology, Univeristy of Pittsburgh Medical Center (2012)
  • Immunology, University of Pittsburgh (2008)
  • Immunology, Yale University School of Medicine (2003)
  • PhD, Biochemistry and Biophysics, Univeristy of Pennsylvania (1999)
  • Internal Medicine, China-Japan Friendship Hospital (1994)
  • MD, Beijing Medical University (Peking University Health Science Center) (1992)

Awards and Honors:

  • NIH Training Grant (2005)
  • NIH Training Grant (2003)
  • Howard Hughes Institute fellowship (2001)
  • Full scholarship from University of Pennsylvania Gratuate Biological Studies (1999)
