Xin Sun

Postdoctoral Research Scientist

I first studied biology in Sun Yat-Sen University, Guangzhou, China. I completed an M.Phil degree working on abscisic acid signalling in Arabidopsis in the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology. I then moved to Canada and completed my PhD investigating the role of a chromatin remodeling factor BAF60C in mouse heart development, in Dr Benoit Bruneau's and Dr Janet Rossant's labs.


In 2013, I moved to Oxford for my first postdoc, in Professor Liz Robertson's lab. In 2015, I joined Professor Paul Riley's lab to investigate the role of extracellular matrix in heart development and characterise the cardiac lymphatic vasculature in the developing heart.
