Hi, I'm Min, from China. I grew up in north China, a city quite near
Beijing, and went to college in Shanghai, where I graduated from Fudan
University with a Bachelor degree in biological sciences. During my
undergraduate years, I worked in two different labs in my home university.
Mainly I worked in a lab studying the development of cerebral cortex. The
project was focused on the roll of a metalloprotease, ADAM17 in neuronal
migration in developmental stage. Last summer, I went to UCLA for a summer
research program, working in a lab investigating Parkinson's Disease. There I used Drosophila as a disease model and explored
the possibility of repairing the damaged mitochondria of
pink1 mutant by reintroducing Pink1 post-developmentally.
Currently, I'd like to continue exploring the mystery of neurobiology, especially
in neural development and degeneration. The molecular events behind the
construction and establishment of nervous system attract me a lot. Also, a
chance to learn more quantitative methods, bioinformatics and programming will
be great, as I want to master multiple methods to answer the questions and see a
different aspect of biological sciences.
In my free time, I love reading, watching
movies, and travelling. The sports I like includes pingpang and yoga.
I'm excited to live in New York, and looking forward to the new life
