Role: Instructor

M.D. Harbin Medical University


I earned my MD from the Harbin Medical University in Harbin, China, in 1980. I moved to the Chaikof Lab from Emory University, where I was a microsurgical instructor for the Emory Transplant Center, Department of surgery. My research has focused on the development of animal models to test the efficacy of novel anti-inflammatory agents to treat and prevent vascular and transplant disease development. I have had significant teaching experience in training medical residents in a microsurgery course.
