I obtained a Bachelor degree in biochemistry from Xiamen University and received comprehensive cell biology and molecular pathology graduate training in Marilyn Farquhar’s laboratory at University of California, San Diego. As a postdoctoral fellow in Lew Cantley’s laboratory at Harvard, I obtained further training in protein kinase signaling and cancer biology and focused my work on the role of LKB1-AMPK pathway in cancer biology. Since 2010, I have been building a well-trained and coordinated group of lab members with specific expertise in protein biochemistry, cell biology, cancer cell metabolism, skin cancer mouse models and experimental therapeutics. The long term goal of my laboratory is to decipher the molecular mechanisms of metabolic signaling in melanoma and to translate these basic research findings into potential personalized therapies, contributing to finding cures for melanoma.
