Projects per year
I received my first degree in Medicine from China Medical University and completed PhD in Immunology/Ophthalmology with Professor John V Forrester at Aberdeen University in 2001. I then joined research teams at the universities of Cambridge (Professor Jenefer Blackwell), Manchester (Paterson Institute for Cancer Research, Professor Peter Stern) and Glasgow (Professor Eddy Liew). In 2010 I joined the University of Strathclyde.
Research in my group focuses on understanding how immune cells and molecules are organised in vivo within a regulatory network during the development of autoimmune and neurological disorders, with a particular interest in multiple sclerosis and Alzheimer’s disease, and thus find those potential molecules which may be the best targets for clinical intervention.
I coordinate Clinical Immunology BM426; Advanced techniques in in vivo biology BM437; PG Advanced techniques in in vivo biology MP968; PG Advanced topics in immunology BM945.
I lecture on the following modules: Immunology labs BM214 and BM327; Clinical Immunology BM426; 4th year biomedical research project BM432; 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; MSc Neuroscience modules and MPharm module Management of inflammation conditions.
I supervise MSc and MSci research projects.
From 2010 to 2017, organiser of the annual British Pharmacological Society funded Immunology Summer School for undergraduates and graduates from various UK institutions. Currently I am a member of Education Expert group on Research Animal Sciences Education Scheme, organised by the Physiological Society and the British Pharmacological Society.
2014 - 2021, Deputy Academic Selector of BMS.
2021 - present, BMS 4th year coordinator.
