Postdoctoral Research Scientist
Working in Prof. Ana Domingos’ group at Department of Physiology, Anatomy and Genetics at University of Oxford, I study the neuroimmunity in obesity through a multidisciplinary approach involving neuroscience, immunity and physiology, aiming to understand the immune compartment within the sympathetic nervous system (SNS). In particular I will apply single-cell RNA sequencing on tissues from animal models and human to explore the heterogeneity of SNS-resident leucocytes and their role in obesity.
I obtained PhD in medicine at University of Bristol, where I worked with Dr. Gavin Welsh and Prof. Peter Mathieson investigating the mechanisms of effectiveness of levamisole (an alternative to steroids) in Minimal Change Nephropathy. I had a Master degree from Shanghai Jiao Tong University School of Medicine exploring the mechanism of action of fenretinide (a synthetic retinoid) in acute myeloid leukemia at Shanghai Institute of Heamatology.
