Personal profile

Personal Statement

I received my first degree in Medicine from China Medical University and completed PhD in Immunology/Ophthalmology at Aberdeen University in 2001. Between 2001 and 2009 I was a postdoctoral researcher and then a senior research fellow at the universities of Cambridge, Manchester (Paterson Institute for Cancer Research) and Glasgow. I joined the University of Strathclyde in 2010.

Expertise & Capabilities

  • Autoimmunity and autoimmune disease
  • Neuroimmunology
  • In vivo immunology
  • Immune cytokines
  • Cancer immunology

Teaching Interests

I coordinate the following courses: Clinical Immunology BM426; Advanced techniques in in vivo biology BM437; PG Advanced techniques in in vivo biology MP968; PG Advanced topics in immunolog BM945.

I lecture on the following courses: Immunology labs BM214 and BM327;  Clinical Immunology BM426; Advanced techniques in in vivo biology BM437 and MP968; PG Advanced topics in immunolog BM945; Targeted cancer therapies for personalised medicine MP981; Advanced Techniques in Biomedical Research MP959.

From 2010-2017, I organized the annual British Pharmacological Society funded Immunology Summer School for undergraduates and graduates from different UK institutions. I also supervise MRes, MSc and MSci research projects.

Research Interests

Our research focuses on understanding how immune molecules are organised in vivo within a regulatory network in the development of autoimmune and neurological autoimmune diseases such as multiple sclerosis, uveoretinitis, and rheumatoid arthritis, and thus find those potential molecules which may be the best targets for clinical intervention for patients with autoimmune disease from all causes. I am also interested in cancer immunology, particularly the effect of immune cells/molecules on cancer development.
