I come from Kaifeng, China and got my Bachelor and Master degree in Clinical Medicine from Zhengzhou University, During my graduate studies, I studied one year in Sweden at Goteborg University, where I focused on the inflammatory changes in neonatal brain injury. After graduation, I attended the IGPBS program of KUMC in 2014 and joined Dr. Jaeschke's lab a year later.

Research Interests

Acetaminophen (APAP) overdose is currently the most frequent cause of acute liver failure in USA. Nonparenchymal cells of the liver and infiltrating inflammatory cells may be involved in APAP hepatotoxicity. However, in contrast to the widely accepted contribution of inflammatory cells in the pathophysiology of hepatic ischaemia-reperfusion injury, and obstructive cholestasis, the contribution of inflammation in the mechanism of APAP-induced liver injury is highly controversial, a better understanding of the role of inflammation function during APAP hepatotoxicity will lead to novel treatment strategies.
